Truth is, it's pretty easy, ...and, it's more than likely all you will need are some new ball bearings, the races are generally ok to re-use.
(All this is on the condition that it's really a case of dried lubricant and worn bearings, and not damaged races, once disassembled, it's very easy to tell the difference.)
Take the bars off, take off the (Generally two) top nuts.. fork will now drop through, and away from the frame.
Gather up and count all the Bearings. Take one to the LBS, (If they are pitted) Get replacements.
Get tube of grease.
P.S. Clean everything very well before putting it back together.
I have a white PX-10, a Green Dawes Galaxy and an Orange Falcon, now I'm done.
