Editing .dwg file from GIS Tutorial 1 book

I am using the ESRI GIS Tutorial 1 book for ArcGIS 10. 
I am trying to complete assignment 6-2 on page 228 and 229. 

I'm not a novice to ESRI or GIS and yet for some reason I cannot figure this out.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

When I add the aerial imagery (25_45.tif and 26_45.tif) and the CampusMap.dwg to the mxd the CampusMap is no where near the aerial imagery and it is far too large to lay over the aerial imagery. 

I have tried defining the projection of the .dwg file.   I have tried exporting it to a .gdb and defining the projection.  I have tried exporting each part of the file to multiple shapefiles and defining the projection. 

Surely I am missing something simple here.  A simple step I am overlooking? 

Please help my clouded mind!  THANKS!!!
