Complete newbie... setup problems

Hi everyone, Just got my Adafruit starter pack and am excited to start learning about the Arduino.. just to bring anyone interested in helping with my problem up to speed...
I followed the windows install instructions with my Duemilanove plugged in and installed the drivers all went well...Yay!. opened the workspace and pointed it to the correct board, and com port... Followed the lesson plan in Ladyada's tutorial "Let there be blink" Loaded the blink sketch from the library... ran verify/compile... and got this below.... As i said in this posts Subject... these are my first tentative steps into this world programmable hardware.. So be kind... but please help i have no idea what is happening!..

Many thanks in advance for your assistance...

M.

Hi Ladyada... thanks for your quick reply I may try re-installing it on the PC at a later date, right now I'm having fun playing around with your lesson plan on my Mac... :D
