pgp question

How do I sign somebody's key? Here's an example of the problem
I'm having;

[1:14am] hamish@yodeller:~> pgp -ks ahpee
Pretty Good Privacy(tm) 2.6.3ia - Public-key encryption for the masses.
(c) 1990-96 Philip Zimmermann, Phil's Pretty Good Software. 1996-03-04
International version - not for use in the USA. Does not use RSAREF.

A secret key is required to make a signature. 
You specified no user ID to select your secret key,
so the default user ID and key will be the most recently
added key on your secret keyring.

Looking for key for user 'ahpee':

Key for user ID: Timothy Ahpee <ahpee@yallara.cs.rmit.edu.au>
1024-bit key, key ID 6C794091, created 1997/03/26
            Key fingerprint = CD 51 BA 6D 15 C8 CB 9C  DF A1 05 3D 9A 18 F7 DF

Key is already signed by user ''.
Key signature error. 
For a usage summary, type:  pgp -h
For more detailed help, consult the PGP User's Guide.

This happens even if I try to sign my own key.
