Default Re: PT 8 Wont recognize COmmand 8

The link shown above reroutes to "http://www.avid.com/US/resources/digi-orientation" which is like dropping a kid off at Grand Central Station and telling him to find his way to Chicago (tells you how much confidence I have in my abilities, lol)...

When I reinstall PT LE 8, the only install options I'm given are shown here
http://i136.photobucket.com/albums/q...alloptions.jpg
I've installed the 8.0.4 update and the CS2 update. Running Mac OSX 10.5.8 with an MBox 2.
The USB light comes on and the MIDI Out 2 light under it blinks when I start Pro Tools and my tracks play through the monitors running from my MBox 2 monitor outs through the Command 8 but that's it.
Under "Setup > Peripherals" I have the following options and settings:
Synchronization
- MTC Reader and Generator
- MTC Reader Port : "Any"
- MTC Generator Port : "None"
Machine Control
- MIDI Machine Control (Master)
-[checked] Enable : "Command8, Port 1" - ID "127" - Preroll "90" Frames
-MIDI Machine Control Remote (Slave)
-[not checked] Enable : ID "127"
MIDI Controllers
- #1 Type : "Command8" - Receive From : "Cmnd8,Prt 1" - Send To : "Cmnd8,Prt2" - # Ch's : "8"
Ethernet Controllers
-[not checked] Enable
Satellites
-[not checked] Enable

I can also open the "Digidesign CoreAudio Manager" but the window shows the following:
Digidesign HW : Unsupported Device
Status : Not Connected (HW not found)
Channels : N/A
Attached Clients : 0
Buffer Size : 512
(Buttons at the Bottom)
"HW Setup..." (grayed out)
"Prefs..." Which brings up a window that shows:
- [checked] Hide manager if auto-launched by client
- [checked] Auto-quit manager when last client quits
- [unchecked] Use C|24 stereo routing (L/R to 1/3)
- (grayed out)[unchecked] Use XMON stereo routing (L/R t 1/5)
- (grayed out)[unchecked] Mirror analog outs 1 & 2 to digital outs (002/003)
"Connect" Which does nothing when clicked
"Quit" Which is the only button that works

Also, when I look in the Digidesign folder "Applications>Digidesign>Pro Tools>Controllers" I see a list of .bundle programs for 003, C24, Command8, Control24, Digi002, etc... but when I try to open the Command8.bundle, I get a Mac Dialog Window that says "There is no default application specified to open the document 'Command8.bundle"

That is about all the information I have. Please help.
