1. what browser(s) are you testing on?
2. Did you download and link the corresponding libraries according to http://www.longtailvideo.com/support/jw-player/jw-player-for-flash-v5/15995/jw-embedder-reference-guide#quickembed?

This should be all there is to it.

jwplayer.js

player.swf

and swfobject.js

all is in the root

Then you probably need to add a line similar to

  <script type="text/javascript" src="/jwplayer/jwplayer.js"></script>

depending on the path.  If you want to keep it in the root, which I don't recommend, you can use the following
 
  <script type="text/javascript" src="/jwplayer.js"></script>

This line should probably go in the head section.  

Typically, when you use a js library, there are three steps.
1. download the libraries, objects, etc.
2. create appropriate links/imports (that's what i am talking about above)
3. use the appropriate functions in your code.

If you think the problem is something else, please post the html code.
