2.09 is a very very outdated version! please update to a newer one, 2.10pre4 
or the svn version.

then you have two ways to import osm data:
you can use the script gpsfetchmap.pl to download maps from the t at h-server,

or you can install a postgis database and use mapnik-osm-updater.sh to fill it 
and get live-rendered maps. in the svn-version searching for osm points of 
interest is also included.
