I'm not having any problems, but I decided to try this.  Part of the
intro that it displays is this:

Of course I don't know where all the files are so I take a look:

> [kevin@localhost kevin]$ locate ltxcheck
> /usr/lib/texmf/texmf/tex/latex/base/ltxcheck.tex
> [kevin@localhost kevin]$ locate article.cls

So, ltxcheck.tex IS in the same directory as article.cls.  Now what do
I do?  :)  (LyX works correctly (i.e. I can write documents, save,
preview and print them, etc.), and I don't think I've written a LaTeX
file manually for some time (not since the Red Hat 4.x days).

This is a Red Hat 5.1 system with upgraded bits and pieces.  All of
the LaTeX stuff would have been installed during installation of the
Linux distribution.
