read this entire thread, then read the other sticky threads. (yes it's a lot of reading but you want to know how to do this don't you? if you just want somebody to "make it work" don't hold your breath - ain't gonna happen)

use the search button with "show results as posts" to look for references to things you have questions about.

there are main threads associated with any program you might want to use. once you find that thread, click on the link at the bottom "show printable version" after it loads, click the link at the top "show all xxx posts in this thread" save this page to your hard drive and use cntrl-f or your fav word processor to search through it. 99.999% of the time your question has allready been asked and answered MANY times.

if you're VERY VERY VERY sure you have an original problem then post specific questions in threads related to the program/utility you are using, trying to use or thinking about using.

PLEASE don't dilute the condensed sources of info to the point they're useless with lame-o questions
