I just tried context for the first time on a Linux Fedora Core 4 PC
(after downloading and installing the latest cont-tmf.zip over the
original installation in my default /usr/share/texmf directory; I then
ran 'fmtutil --all').  My simple file, samplecontext.tex, reads:

\starttext

a test

\stoptext

I then tried:

% texexec samplecontext

and get the following errors ==>:
 TeXExec 5.4.3 - ConTeXt / PRAGMA ADE 1997-2005

It looks like a bad installation.  Any ideas?

Thanks for your help.
