I am using  Texlive 2009, and get errors as soon as I load "chicago-notes-df"

Here is my preamble

\author{Mervyn Thomas}

\defbibheading{bibliography}{\section*{Works Cited}}

The following error appears in the log
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-1.40.10 (TeX Live 2009)

! LaTeX Error: Command \abx at macro@byothers already defined.
               Or name \end... illegal, see p.192 of the manual.

See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.

I am doing some humanities courses, and they insist on Chicago
footnote reference style :(

Sorry if this has a well known solution, I have searched the wiki and
all the documentation I could find.

I have used Latex for a while, but I am absolutely incompetent at
hacking the installation!\

I would be very grateful for any help!
