I can't even get the photo stream or iCloud configured. I continually get the attached message.
I can't find any place on me.com to do this nor am I sure I even want to do this if I could find where to do it. MobileMe is doing a fine job of syncing my contacts, calendar, etc. I don't know how iCloud would work at this point.

You've probably already seen this by now, but on Saturday they released Mac OS X 10.7.2 on the developer's webpage, which is starting to test iCloud beta on macs. Everything syncs/merges automatically with the exception of photo stream, which requires an iPhoto upgrade to work.
They advise against using this iPhoto download because apparently it replaces your "current version of iPhoto" and doesn't open your existing library. I'm not really one to experiment much with it now, but it at least means that they're closer to releasing a working version of iCloud for OS X, and most importantly a way of accessing those files.
Here's a rather bizarre update to this whole story.
For no particular reason, I tried to log into iCloud again this morning - and it worked. I turned on Photo Stream.
Several hours later I created a new photo folder and went to sync. It would not complete. Timed out everyi time. I unchecked all folders - sync complete. I tried various individual folders. Long story short,I turned off Photo stream, and I was able to sync all folders successfully.
Not sure if this is another bug in iOS 5 or in iCloud.
