Your source material, your setup and your project, amongst others cause this.
ok, so what can I do to fix this at least temporarily so I can finish the project?
Give details or limit your stills resolution to your project settings and use a proper codec.
I guess you missed the whole "this is my first project" thing there. I seem to have found a temporary solution in starting up a second sequence which is allowing me to put in new material.
>overlay more images into the project.
What does that mean? Explain the exact items you click/drag and/or what keys you press.

The items are all large jpg files (average size 300-600 KB). I put them up in the source window, edit down the length to about where it needs to be, position the cursor on the timeline where I need the image, then hit the "overlay" button.
It stopped working, i.e. I would press "overlay" and absolutely nothing would happen. Same goes for the "insert" one. Starting up a second sequence seems to have given me a shot at finishing this without starting over from scratch
Target the track. (click,click,click...) Its different in CS4 and a PITA.
What is the pixel size of your jpgs? Users have reported problems when editing many large stills. If you're not doing movement, scale down before putting in Premiere.
I am doing movement, so I can't screw around with the scale much. 1000 by 800 for the most part
These are not large stills; no your problem.
You can get this symptom by trying to insert/overlay with no track selected.
