Did the package download off the net? Did you do an Install and  

1)download the latest i-installer:


2)After putting the i-installer in you Applications folder, double  
click it and click on the i-Package->Known Packages i-Directory menu  
item. From the window that opens choose Gerben's i-Directory @ TUG  
and then double click the TeX i-package. This will download the first  
part of the package. Press Install & Configure and choose TL2005. Now  
comes the large downloads and the need to give your admin account  
password; the latter will come up several times as the downloaded  
packages are unpacked, installed and configured. Follow the defaults  
(well, in the default page you might want letter as the default - you  
were in the US weren't you)?

You also might want to get the latest ghostscript package.

Now that I'm saying this... what version of OS X are you using?

Good Luck,
