[texhax] problem installing TeX with Leopard

Dear Sir/Madam,

I joined this morning TUG. I downloaded the MacTeX-2007 Package from  
your website and went through installation on my new MacBook Pro with  
a newly installed Leopard (10.5.1 with the updates downloaded two  
days ago from the internet).

When I typeset a document (LaTeX or plain TeX), I get the following  

Can't find required tool
/usr/local/teTeX/in/i386-apple-darwin-current/pdftex does not exist.
Perhaps TeXLive was not installed or was removed during a system  
If so go the the TeXShop web site and follow the instructions to (re) 
install TeXLive.
Another possbility is that a tool path is incorrectly configured in  
TeXShop preferences.

I thought that the package was self-contained. Do I have to wait for  
the CD (with my TUG membership I ordered extra the TeX Live CD).

Since I followed the standard procedure, I presume I am not the only  
one to have experienced that.

Any help to relieve my frustration would be most welcome.
