new install: can't convert to mobi

I just installed Calibre on a mac (OS 10.6.9). I'm having trouble converting to the MOBI format. After running into errors, I am simply trying to convert the "Calibre Quick Start Guide". I can convert it to other formats, but not to MOBI. When I try, I get the following error:
