Hi Jim,

(Sorry for the delayed reply.)

    then asked it to install the package and the program crashes (numerous
    times). Perhaps I don't know which directory to include?
        I know that I am doing something wrong but cannot figure out what is
    wrong. Anyone to help?

I assume you're on Windows.  I'm not sure exactly sure which directory
the Windows program wants to be told, but I believe it's something under
texlive/..., rather than ctan/...  Maybe
ctan/texmf-dist/tpm/powerdot.tpm is what it needs to read.  Staszek, Pawel?

Also, powerdot was actually included in TeX Live 2005 already, so
perhaps it's already there?  It should be if you did the "full" install.
