This isn't quite right.  Here at the office I am running Stata 7:

. update

Stata executable
    folder:               N:\School\stata7\
    name of file:         wstata.exe
    currently installed:  01 Feb 2002

-findit- doesn't find it:

. findit cdsimeq
                                                                                      29 Aug 2003 15:59:05
Keyword search

        Keywords:  cdsimeq
          Search:  (1) Official help files, FAQs, and STBs
                   (2) Web resources from Stata and from other users

Search of official help files, FAQs, and STBs

Web resources from Stata and other users

(contacting http://www.stata.com)
no matches

(end of search)

Yet because the author of the package, Omar Keshk, wrote the package for 
version 7:

. which cdsimeq
d:\ado\cdsimeq.ado
*!Omar M.G. Keshk        (SJ3-2: st0038)

. program list cdsimeq

cdsimeq, eclass:
  1. version 7.0

my version of Stata will run it quite happily.
