Hi Michael,

    I too went through all this and it's only a matter of getting the 
right info.  I do tech support since 1992 (Cisco, Windoze, Linux) and 
sometimes, i can search a long time just to get quality info.  I not 
only want to have a recipe, i want to understand!  And you know that 
information on the internet is often partial, raw or completely wrong!

Here is a few link for this:

Hope this helps!
