The tutorial is for PEAK 0.5a3; it appears you're using PEAK 0.5a2.  To get 
0.5a3, you'll need to download from CVS (see 
http://peak.telecommunity.com/Meta/SourceandBinaryReleases.html for info), 
and you'll need a C compiler to install it.

Once you have that installed, you may want to look at


at least up through lesson 4.  (Lesson 5 doesn't work with any version of 
PEAK as yet.)
