Assuming you have a standard installation, you need to use one of the following to load the DiscreteDistributions package

<<Statistics`DiscreteDistributions`
Get@"Statistics`DiscreteDistributions`"
Needs@"Statistics`DiscreteDistributions`"

The first two are equivalent and work the same. The last differs in that it first checks to see if the package is already loaded and loads it only if it is not already loaded.
