There are detailed instructions at
CAMPY ONLY (http://www.campyonly.com)
further instruction are at:
upgrade your ergo levers (http://www.campyonly.com/howto/cam_change.html)
and for required parts:Branford Bike (http://www.branfordbike.com/campy/campy.html#Upgrade)

(or even 10spd).
Hope this helps,
