If you got your screenshot from files.example.com, you've done the CNAME setup correctly. That's an AWS permissions error, probably caused by the object you're accessing not being world-readable. –  ceejayoz Apr 18 '13 at 19:51

Create a CNAME record for files.example.com with content of s3.amazonaws.com.

The bucket will need to be named files.example.com.
