How do I have footnotes in a table while using memoir?

I tried ctable, but I get the following errors:

/usr/local/texlive/2008/texmf-dist/tex/latex/hyperref/hyperref.sty:4022: No room for a new \dimen .
/usr/local/texlive/2008/texmf-dist/tex/latex/hyperref/hyperref.sty:4022: leading text: \newdimen\Field@Width

The threeparttable package is compatible with memoir.

is threeparttable more highly recommended than ctable? – Neil G Aug 13 '10 at 20:43
It's a matter of taste. Personally, I don't like the way ctable deviates from standard LaTeX syntax (by using a command instead of an environment to create floats). Note that I wrongly assumed ctable was incompatible with memoir. – lockstep Aug 13 '10 at 21:08
Thanks, I decided to go with threeparttable. – Neil G Aug 13 '10 at 21:15

Errors with this messages may be resolved using etex:


The error message means that the dimen register set is full. etex allows to use e-TeX’s extended register sets. See the UK TeX FAQ: No room for a new ‘thing’.

I get elatex not found? – Neil G Aug 13 '10 at 20:54
That must be related to your editor. elatex is obsolete and not included in newer distributions since the e-TeX extensions have been merged with the "normal" LaTeX. – Philipp Aug 14 '10 at 19:39
