You might try manually inserting a test EML document into your Metacat  
instance.  A very direct way to do this would be to use the "dev"  
skin.  (I'll use localhost for my example URLs.)

First login to metacat (this will work with your new auth interface  
Then try to insert a sample document (paste XML into the first text  
area, but leave the DTD box blank):

If this is a brand-spankin'-new installation of Metacat, make sure  
you've run the "register-schemas" ant target so that your Metacat can  
locate the EML schemas for validation when inserting the documents  
(it's an often overlooked step in the installation).
