you need to use +5Vgroundrx and txtry swapping rx/tx also, in case its a labeling issue.
...I'll grab my 5v power supply and see if it works better...
Did you try the suggestions in the troubleshooting guide (http://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/Troubleshooting#upload)? Do you have any other Arduino boards? Can you upload to them?
Also, try the final Arduino 0010 release: http://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software
There is an LED on the board. It does a triple flash on powerup, waits ~10 seconds, and repeats the triple flash. (and repeats the 10 second wait, triple flash, etc...)
Have you tried the 2nd configuration but switching TX/RX?
