[texhax] bibtex error message

I am encountering the following when I try to run bibtex:

$ latex report.tex
$ bibtex report
bibtex: Need exactly one file argument.
Try 'bibtex --help' for more information.

I don't think bibtex even starts as there are no .bbl or .blg files
created. I am running latex/teTEX on Redhat 9. I tried to reinstall all
of the teTeX files, but that did not change matters.  If I copy .bbl &
.blg files after bibtexing in Windows and then latex in linux,
everything links up fine - but this is a pain.

Any suggestions on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.
