# Can't compile with polynom package

#### hatsoff

Hey, guys.

I'm trying to format long division with latex, and I'd like to use the polynom package. Unfortunately, neither TeXnicCenter/MikTex in Windows nor texlive-latex-base in ubuntu linux is able to compile my document.

TeXnicCenter just gives a generic error. The latex command in ubuntu gives slightly more detailed information:

Code:
File polynom.sty' not found.`
I've reviewed the official polynom package documentation without success. Their sample polydemo.tex file gives me the same error (and then some).

Is there any way I can get this to work? It would be enormously helpful to use this package.
