\documentclass{article}
\newcommand{\BoxIt}{blah blah.....}

This is a test of how good LaTeX is on Linux (just to get the word Linux
in this email).

\BoxIt{ch4box01}{The Grasses}{These evolved over millions of years}

And here is a reference to it (see~Box~\ref{ch4box01}).

\end{document}
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

Now just fill us in more with what is in the command, what any error
