Default Dragon tutorial question

Hello all!

I am tring to set up an image plane like that in the first dragon head tutorial. I've done it over and over but can't get the image. When I middle mouse click and drag it on the plane, it confirmes it below....."result: dropped lambert1 onto pPlane1" but all I get is the plain grey plane.

I am using the Maya 5.0 PLE. I'm kinda thinking that may be the reason for the zilch, but don't really know for sure.

Any help would be greatly received, Thank you!

Remember to turn on hardware texturing.

press 6 key to turn on hardware texturing. Also, it's good practice to get in the habit of not manipulating Lambert1. I would highly recomend leaving Lambert1 at its default and creating a new material to use for textures.
