It's because you've deselected the rectangle.
Just simply select your rectangle again by either ctrl + clicking the layer the ractangle is on or select it with the magic wand or whater ever you want.
Now you can use the subtract option again (the shortcut for subtract is holding down alt I believe).

I hope this helps :)

Erm..
Your almost there.
You can't just highlight the layer in blue you have to ctrl + left click the little squared box in the layer to make a selection of the contents in this layer (Marching ants around the rectangle).
Then the subtract options should be available.

okay, I took a look at it in photoshop, but it's working, your obviously doing something wrong along the way.
Follow this:

Create a new file (ctrn + n), in your layers palette you will not see a layer named layer 1 or "background layer", but just leave it.
Add a new layer ctrl + shift + n name it "square".
Create a rectangle with the rectangle marque tool and fill it with white ("d""x""Alt+backspace"). now add some simple effect to it with blending options like stroke or emboss.
Now create a new layer (this is actually optional), ctrl + click the "square" layer to make a selection of the rectangle, take out the eleptical marque tool, hold down alt and draw and elipse over the area you want to remove.
If you hold down shift instead of alt, you'll add more area to the selection.
If you followed theese steps closely and I didn't make any mistakes, this should work ;)

When you get your corners, select the background layer, hold down Control and click on the name of your shape layer in the Layers Pallette. This should give you a selection of just the corners.
Nice effect :)

Matt
It's a bit early in the morning for me to have rational thoughts!
Try this:
Draw your rectangle shape
Draw the rounded corner shape in Subtract Mode
Click on the background layer in the Layer Pallette
Hold down Control and click on the name 'Shape 1' in the layers pallette
Delete the 'Shape 1' layer.
You should be left with just the corners selected - Edit>Fill with whatever colour you want.
