I have come ot the conclusion that what they want will likly not happen the way they want it to. I have spent the past few days trying everything I (and others) could think of to resolve this problem, without any true results. I am now waiting for what is now needed.
As for the tiff and tfw, both are generated as both are needed in the long run.
Thanks for all the help on this topic and Cheers
if you send me a shapefile or an ascii file with the point locations and the projection specification I can write a Python script that draws points with any radius at the specified locations on a tif file. You could use that script if the need arises again. I am a programmer, and if something can be programmed, I can do it
