I am very new to GIS (3 weeks with no training) and I am trying to set up Closest Facilty. 

Here is what I have done so far:

1. Start ArcCatalog by clicking Start > All Programs > ArcGIS > ArcCatalog 10.
2. Click Customize > Extensions
3. Check Network Analyst
4. Click Close
5. Create a Blank Map and add the ???streets??? network to ArcMap
6. Start ArcCatalog by clicking Start > All Programs > ArcGIS > ArcCatalog 10.
7. File->Add Data
8. Navigate to: C:\Documents and Settings\bpdurand\My Documents\ArcGIS\Packages\Streets.lpk\v10\
9. Add the file: 0000Basemap.lyr
10.         Start ArcMap by clicking Start > All Programs > ArcGIS > ArcMap 10.
11.        Click Customize > Toolbars > Network Analyst.
12.        The Network Analyst toolbar is added to ArcMap
13.  I got out of ArcMap and then got back in.

I admit there are a few steps which I did not include but I do not think they are relevant. 

I thought I was getting someplace until I ran into these two issues:

1) My TOC is gone along with (not sure what it is called) but the drop down box that sizes the map from 0% to 100%. 
2) When I click on Network Analyst all of the options (except Options) are greyed out.

I can't even get it back to how it was before much less set up Network Analyst.

Any suggestions?
