Park tool site if you prefer just to read how to do it. The Park Tool site should be a bookmark for you, it is excellent.

I see you got the FD I sent you for the cost of shipping. Bad form not to PM and at least say thanks or send the shipping cost you indicated you'd send. I'd at least liked to have been told you received it.
