The installer default is A4. You have to tell it that you want
lettersize. The easiest thing to do is to simply run the i-Installer,
open TeX, and then click "Configure Only" to set the paper size. You
can also do this on a document-by-document basis or with the command
line, but there might be some other things you want to configure in the
Via the Terminal, you can issue:
texconfig dvips paper letter
texconfig pdftex paper letter
All the best,
