KindleGen cover issues

Hi guys,

Could I ask for some help with Kindlegen? I keep getting the following warning:

"Warning(prcgen):W14016: Cover not specified"

But so far I'm doing everything by the book (at least, I believe so). Here's my OPF:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<package xmlns="" version="2.0" unique-identifier="bookflorence">
<metadata xmlns:dc="" xmlns:opf="">
  	<dc:title>Bad Guys Are Evil</dc:title>
	<dc:identifier id="bookexample" opf:scheme="ISBN">95658655571364</dc:identifier>
	<dc:rights>Copyright (C) 2012 by Me. All rights reserved.</dc:rights>
  	<meta name="cover" content="book-cover" />
	<item id="book-content" media-type="application/xhtml+xml" href="book.htm"></item>
	<item id="toc2" media-type="application/x-dtbncx+xml" href="toc.ncx"/>
  <item id="book-cover" media-type="image/jpeg" href="book-cover.jpg"/>
<spine toc="toc2">
	<itemref idref="book-content"/>
	<reference type="toc" title="Table of Contents" href="book.htm%23TOC"></reference>
	<reference type="text" title="Start" href="book.htm%23start"></reference>
I have the image in the right place, and everything seems standard, so I just don't understand why I'm getting these warning messages.

Any help would be great

Oh crap... just figured it out. I was trying to Kindlegen the html not the opf. *DOH!!!*

Sorry for cluttering the forum with my inexperience!
