I have the professinal SharePoint 2010 Branding and user interface design book.

I'm in chapter  8, which focuses on Master Pages.

I download the starter master page (startpublishing.master) the book is using and I copy and paste it into the another master page called waffles.master.   I save and check in and approve.
I then go to the "Site Master Page Settings" to point to my new master page but I get an error which says

Error

File Not Found.

There is probably a fault in the masterpage you are pasting, it is probably including a file in it which it can't find.   Check all the  "src" attributes in the "Register" sections at the top to make sure that everything it needs is available.

You can see an example of this problem here:
