Products always out of stock

HI there,
I have started to use Magento, and so far everything seems great!
I have a problem with products always showing out of stock.

Here is what I have done:
I created 4 simple products with a custom attribute of size.  I allocated a size to each duplicate copy of the product, The status of the simple products are set to disabled so they will not show on the site, each product has been set to in stock and I have added a quantity of 10 for each.

I then created a configurable product to try to enable a dropdown for size for the user.
When I did this, the product in the frontend shows up as out of stock,even though the configurable product is set to in stock.  The dropdown list also does not show up in the front end for sizes.

Can somebody point me in the right direction as to what I am doing wrong?
I am using the latest version of Magento (1.1.8) since I only installed it yesterday.

Thanks

Hi,
I have solved my own problem!
I enabled my simple products again, and then set them to Visibility - Nowhere.
Now I get my dropdown menu and the product is in stock.

Another issue is that when I set a price to each attribute, i.e. a different price for each size, it clears the fields when I save!
Is this a bug or something I have done wrong?

Thanks
