If it won't typeset, it's a problem of the TeX installation. TeXShop  
is just an editor that calls Gerben's (or finks) TeX installation  
(e.g. using iTeXMac you'd have the same problems). Try pdflatex at  
the command line. You'll likely get the same error. You need someone  
knowledgeable about why this last line is returned. What was  
different in the other installation where it was working?
