Derailleur Adjustment

Yawl;
Both my wife and I are having trouble with our front derailleurs. (we are both still riding dept store junk and will be for the foreseeable future). While I'm really nervous about adjusting them myself, I see no alternative. I had my wifes done by the LTS (Local Tackle Shop which also sells bikes) last week but it's out of adjustment already. Can someone point me to an online guide? :confused: :confused:

Thank you in advance!

Don't forget to make sure the derailleur is level with, or slightly toed in from, the chainline.
