I just completed installing and configuring Tridion Content Manager 2011 SP2. I am unable to classify any component using keywords.

I have created categories and keywords in my publication and I am trying to classify a component using the same. But none of the categories are appearing the window which opens up on selecting "Classify" option of the component.

Any pointers on what I might be missing here?

The schema on which your component is based on should have at least one Keyword field (a Text field with values coming from Category). Here is an example:
