I was in the same boat, until I decides to just give it a shot, because the LBS wanted $25 to true the wheel. And with the family fleet to maintain, well do the math. Just remember that to move the rim to the right(looking at it) tighten the spokes that go to the right side of the hub, to the left is the left side of the hub. Work slow, pay attention to what you are doing, only tighten the spokes a little bit each time, 1/4 turn or less. Also dont' expect just one spoke t need tightening, usually you need to tighten 3 or more spokes on a side to get on spot true. It looks and sounds way harded that it really is. It is no more difficult than adjusting a cup and cone hub bearing, and cleaner.
