I am new to Tex and having problems setting it up.

I installed Tex using the I-Installer as instructed on the website and then 
installed TexShop v1.43. I have Mac OS 10.3.9.

When i try and typeset any file, the log just gives a long list of the 
following error for different fonts:

Warning: /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current/pdflatex (file 
0): kpathsea: Running mktexpk --mfmode / --bdpi 600 --mag 1+120/600 --dpi 
720 cmsy10

Try ` --help' for more information.
warning: kpathsea: mktexpk output `/var/tmp/texfonts/pk/ljfour/public/cm/' 
instead of a filename.
Font cmex10 at 720 not found

Any ideas on what i can do to fix this?

Thanks for your help
