Scroll down to the section on ribbing here http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting...iques/misc.php and look at how you do ribbing. You may be bringing the yarn over the needle instead of between the tips when you switch between knits and purls.

It also takes several rows before it starts to look ribbed.

BTW, don't use all capitals unless you need to emphasize something. In the internet world it's the same as screaming and it's also a little harder to read.

Remember, too, that they want you to knit the knits and purl the purls as they face you.
