The key to that is patience. Don't expect mapnik to be quick, and don't expect 
level 1-11 osmarender tiles anytime soon.

It's a matter of data projection. You can find wealths of information about 
that in the wikipedia (short version: "how many ways of flattening the 
surface of the earth can you find?").

Go to the JOSM preferences, third tab, named "map settings". Play with 
the "projection method" setting. Enjoy.

P.S.: Shouldn't this go to the newbies at osm mailing list?
