Congratulations!

TeXShop is really a front-end to a TeX distribution. I guess what you
mean is you're using gwTeX. But be sure, when you install MacTeX,
that you have the latest TeXShop version; see

With our membership we receive a DVD with distributions for Linux,
Mac (MacTeX) and Windows, but you'll have to wait till summer for

http://www.tug.org/mactex/

If you subscribe to the TeX on Mac OS X mailing list

http://email.esm.psu.edu/mailman/listinfo/macosx-tex

you'll find there people like Richard Koch and other MacTeX
maintainers, always willing to help us.

Best,
