Default Switching from bottling to kegging

Can someone point me to a good article or book on the basics of kegging home brew? I've been home brewing for about 18 months and have only bottled. Thinking about picking up a used kegerator on Craigslist but have no idea how to keg. Thanks.

I actually started with youtube videos. Craigtube, our own Bobby_m and Northern Brewer all have great and very helpful videos on how to keg. I found those more help than anything written.

Yep, the stickeys were my second thing I dove into when I started to generate a list of what I'd need and what I needed to do, but I found reading it dry it was easy to get lost in, but having watched the videos helped me have a better understanding of the concepts.
