    What error messages are these lines generating?

    The problem may stem from your PHP installation not
    including the GD image library.  (CWIS attempts to
    make use of external utilities if it can't find the
    needed internal GD support, but calling external
    programs is a much less reliable solution.)  To see
    if you have GD, take a look at the phpinfo() display
    (available via the Administration page in CWIS), and
    look for a section titled "gd".
