OK, this works all fine, but the there is the trouble with my old latex files,
latex still supports the us of sty files, right? I have several documents
that uese that apportch, and I felt it easyer to install the stys, than 
convert all my files. 

Then there is the trouble with lyx. I have just started to try it out, and it 
seems like it uses the sty approch, but it might be a misconfiguration of it
