Hey, I wanted to buy some Bitcoins, and all I have that's currently a good source of money is my Paypal account. Until I can put this in the marketplace, would anyone like to sell their Bitcoins or point me to a good exchange site to get it easily into another more popular site? Just in case you care, I have 100% positive ratings on ebay (57 reviews) and can send you a message to verify its me. http://myworld.ebay.com/jakel-s

I had the same problem. Exchanges are very wary of PayPal for the reason that it does *nothing* to protect sellers. You should look into http://bitcoin-otc.com/ , #bitcoin-otc on freenode. It is a p2p marketplace where you can probably find someone willing to sell to you. Careful though, usually the prices for PPUSD are quite high, exactly because of the risks involved.

If you still can't find anybody, PM me in a week and we'll figure something out.

Buying with Paypal probably won't be worth it for you, assuming you can even find a seller.  You've got no reputation (eBay account aside), and it's still difficult for people who've already established some rep around here to buy with Paypal.  Your best bet is probably to just sign up with Dwolla and use that to send money to Mt Gox or Tradehill.  Be aware that this process will take about a week (possibly longer).  You have to verify your bank account with Dwolla first, and then do an ACH transfer, both of which are slowed down by your bank.  Once the money is actually in your Dwolla account, getting it to Mt Gox should take less than 24 hours (I haven't tried Tradehill).
