Setting up IntelliJ - JSDK "Nothing to show"

Hi there!
I'm currently trying to get IntelliJ to work on my osx lion. But when creating a new project the wizard shows me the following page:

Please select JSDK for this project


Project JDK


Nothing to show

And no matter where I go with the file browser, I alsways get "nothing to show". Because of that I can't complete the wizard...
(Creating Java apps with Eclipse works fine by the way)

What do I have to do to get this working?
Thanks!

The instructions are for windows, but it might give you a hint.  The
Java Control panel has a bug. It does not list all your JDKs. You will
probably need to know the directory where the one you want is
installed.

Capitalism has spurred the competition that makes CPUs faster and
faster each year, but the focus on money makes software manufacturers
do some peculiar things like deliberately leaving bugs and deficiencies
in the software so they can soak the customers for upgrades later.
Whether software is easy to use, or never loses data, when the company
has a near monopoly, is almost irrelevant to profits, and therefore
ignored. The manufacturer focuses on cheap gimicks like dancing paper
clips to dazzle naive first-time buyers. The needs of existing
experienced users are almost irrelevant. I see software rental as the
best remedy.
