I know this is not the reply most people want, but it really does help to
read the manual.

Anyway, with chapterbib you need to run BibTeX on each file that is
\include'd and tha contains citations and then, of course, run LaTeX twice.
Other than this, it's hard to imagine what you might be doing wrong.
