TemplateSyntaxError at /admin/sites/site/ Trying to use Tutorial 02 .96 and svn problems

Hi, trying to learn Django and I am following everything in the
tutorial. However, when originally I tried to load the admin site I
got an templatedoesnotexist error. I followed this:http://forums.devshed.com/showpost.php?p=1856484&postcount=2got the svn for post .96 and put in the admin templates and media
directories. The admin page worked and I was able to login and
continue on the tutorial.

Now, when I click change on a site I get a new error (see below.) The
problem is that I am running the svn I installed above that obviously
is calling code that does not exist in .96, but does in the svn.

How can I get either the .96 admin templates that are not in the tar
of the official release or what can I do to get the svn running? I
thought that I could simply delete the existing django folders on my
mac os x 10.5.2 and just paste the new ones, but was unsure if that
was correct (though it was mentioned on the djangoproject page.) Can
I just delete the whole django directory and paste the new svn ones?
What about my MySQL stuff, will it be there?

Please help so I can use django. Thank you.

When I click change on the admin site I get:
