You just see a blank Mathematica window? No picture, no caption? I just 
downloaded and opened the .nbp file in Mathematica 6.0.2, on Linux, and 
it's all present as it should be. I wonder if there is a registry or 
other issue, and you fired up Mathematica but did not successfully open 
that .nbp file?

Let's start from the web page
If you click near the top, in "DOWNLOAD LIVE VERSION", you should get 
the .nbp file. If you scroll down under the picture, caption and 
"Contributed by" box, to "DOWNLOAD SOURCE CODE NOTEBOOK", then you 
should get the .nb file.
