Child Theme are BuddyPress incompatible???


I am trying to make a child theme off of Network, to make a WPMU & BuddyPress website for a client. I know I need to at least make a child theme because I plan on hacking up the layout and making massive changes.

HOWEVER, when I installed buddypress, it did NOT say that my child theme was able to use BuddyPress.

I thought all themes in WPMU were BuddyPress-Compatible. What am I doing wrong and what must I do to make this work? Thank you!

PS: i'm on a deadline, so a quIck response would be GREAT!
