Sounds like a little manual reading might be in order.

The natbib package relies on the bibliography being presented in a certain
fashion, e.g.,

\bibitem[Author1 et al.(1999)Author1, Author2 and
Author3]{label}
Author1,~A., Author2,~B., and Author3,~C. (1999), \emph{The title} ...

This is not the only possibility but it is best done with BibTeX and a
suitable bibstyle.  The natbib package provides and explains at least three
- so ... try the natbib manual.

Ispell is not part of LaTeX, as far as I know.  Are you sure you have it
installed and how are you trying to run it?
