Did you look at predict? I am guessing you didn't satisfy its "needs",  
namely an exact match o the names of its terms. Those I() terms always  
mess me up and I avoid them religiously.

The real mistake at this point is not including a workable example.  
See the Posting Guide. You are asking us to guess about mistakes in  
your data setup and aren't even including the exact error message. The  
fix for both issues you will see described in the Posting Guide.
