@import "compass/reset"; - Fails to compile

@import "compass/reset"; is nowhere in the sample project folder created by using compass.app. Does compass.app not install compass on my local machine? I tried to follow the video to use terminal but the instructions do not work. I get nothing but permission errors. I don't even know if compass is even installed on my machine.

The whole basis of this makes ZERO sense, especially since there is NO FOLDER names compass/reset to import into screen.scss. What am missing here. The video certainly does nothing what-so-ever to explain where these files are supposed to be generated from. It's IMPOSSIBLE to follow along since these files are missing.
