Option one: get your Vidalia working. Perhaps your ControlPort isn't
enabled, or you're not letting Vidalia launch your Tor, or something.

Option two: install Blossom instead and use that to display what circuits
you're using: http://afs.eecs.harvard.edu/~goodell/blossom/

Option three: run at log-level info, and look through the logs for the
description of your circuit's path whenever you launch a stream or close
a stream.

Option four: enable your controlport, and telnet localhost 9051,
"authenticate", "setevents circ stream", and match things up manually.

Personally, I'd probably choose option three at this point. But I spend
a lot of time looking through Tor's logs to make sure everything is
working right, so I'm used to them. :)
