In general, the single most important thing you can do first is getting your main (possibly only) timer interrupt working and verifying that it works. Blinking an LED at a standard rate and using a stopwatch to verify is a good step too - or just toggling an I/O and watching it on a scope to verify you have your basic timing working is the first, most important step, IMHO.

Good Luck - FreeRTOS is a lot of fun!

Sorry - didn't know you'd replied. What hardware do you have?
There's a PC app you can try - maybe you should start there.
Have you downloaded the example code in SVN?
