Hi Tim

LaTeX is part of the teTeX distribution which is what
you have downloaded as TeX.dmg.  If you have installed
it all when you open up TeXShop it should
be able to process a latex file.

Try opening TeXShop and typing



This is a test


Save this as test.tex.

Then click on the button saying TeX.  TeXShop should call
latex or pdflatex and process this file and produce a
window titled test.pdf with the words This is a test
in it.
