Coinbase 0x000000000[...]

Hello all Im new here and trying to get the hang of using the tools for Ethereum. Following the guide at the homepage I was able to install the ethereum x64 package for Windows and generate the genesis block. I created an account ( I think , as I am prompted for a password when I attempt to run eth ) and tried to using setMiningBenefactor (it returns true) and then I have actually mined using my GPU for a few hours and I now have 5 finney... I am beginning to wonder how I even got the finney because after leaving the miner on for another 8 hours I made 0 progress and still only have 5 finney. My coinbase appears to be 0x000000000000000000000000 for some reason. Does this have something to do with it?
