Doris, here is my .vimrc (the important parts) with my latex-suite
settings.  Latex-suite is an excellent alternative to TeXShop, so
please don't let the lack of support here discourage you from using

tex-suite options
set grepprg=grep\ -nH\ $*
let Tex_BIBINPUTS="/Users/brian/Library/texmf/bibtex/bib/"
"let g:Tex_ViewRule_ps="/sw/bin/ghostview"
"let g:Tex_ViewRule_pdf="/sw/bin/xpdf"
"let g:Tex_ViewRule_dvi="/sw/bin/xdvi"
"let g:Tex_DefaultTargetFormat="pdf"
imap <F12> <Plug>Tex_Completion
au BufNewFile,BufRead *.tex set formatoptions=acroq
let g:Tex_FormatDependency_pdf = 'dvi,ps,pdf'
let g:Tex_DefaultTargetFormat = 'pdf'
let g:Tex_MultipleCompileFormats = 'pdf'

Let us know how it goes.
