Can't add HomePage.php in Tutorial 1

Go to End

I've seen others with this issue but have not seen a resolution, though I may have missed it.

I've installed WAMP on WinXP and installed SS as per instructions. I started going through Tutorial 1 and all was well (after modifying the URL to remove ':3000') until I got to the part about changing the home page.

I put HomePage.php in \tutorial\code and flushed the db. The page shows this:

FATAL ERROR: Bad class to singleton() - HomePage
At line 85 in C:\wamp\www\silverstripe-empty\sapphire\core\Core.php

user_error(Bad class to singleton() - HomePage,256)
line 85 of Core.php

line 175 of DatabaseAdmin.php

line 90 of DatabaseAdmin.php

line 261 of Controller.php

line 104 of Director.php

line 158 of main.php

followed by some other stuff. Needless to say the new HomePage type was not added to Admin.

So, how exactly do I change the home page?
