Issues with libraries

I have a seven segment display and my Arduino won't read it, I have the library for it, but it won't light. I have already looked up the pin layouts, but the Arduino just won't read it. Could somebody help me out with this?

Thanks, Kamek

P.S.: I am using an Arduino Duemilanove

If someone called you on the 'phone and asked you that question, what additional information would you need to know in order to answer them?
