If you've installed the latest MacTeX and were using TeXShop before  
you'll have to change the path setting for the TeX binaries. Go to  
TeXShop->Preferences->Engines tab and set the (pdf)TeX Path setting  
to /usr/local/texbin and that should allow TeXShop to find your  
distribution from now on.

To change distribution you just pick the one you want active in the  
TeX Distribution Preference Pane in System Preferences.

Good Luck,
