[ros-users] problem using ros_tutorials

I'm new to ROS and trying to work through the installation and
tutorials, but I'm having a little trouble and I'd love it if someone
might be able to help. I'm running 64-bit Fedora 12.
Following directions on http://www.ros.org/wiki/ROS/Installation/Fedora,
I've installed ROS in /opt/ros, and the ROS tutorials in
/opt/ros-tutorials. When I try Step 1.2 in the "Creating a ROS package"
tutorial, though, it tells me there is no such package "ros_tutorials".
Below is a sequence of commands showing more detail. I noticed that the
file "/opt/ros-tutorials/setup.sh" is empty, whereas "/opt/ros/setup.sh"
has the contents you see below. Is that correct? Or should that setup
file have more environment setup contents?
Thanks for any advice; if there's any other information that would be
helpful, let me know.

roscd: No such package 'ros_tutorials'
12:57:37 [michael at tablet ~]$ echo $ROS_ROOT
12:57:44 [michael at tablet ~]$ ls /opt/ros*
ros setup.sh stacks this.rosinstall
ros_pkg_tutorials ros_tutorials setup.sh this.rosinstall
12:57:52 [michael at tablet ~]$ cat /opt/ros-tutorials/setup.sh
12:58:15 [michael at tablet ~]$ cat /opt/ros/setup.sh
if [ ! "$ROS_MASTER_URI" ] ; then export
ROS_MASTER_URI=http://localhost:11311 ; fi
