Default Corny Kegging For Dummies

Okay, so I'm 6 batches into my revived hobby and I'm tired of bottling.

Can anyone point me to a sight that illustrates the basics of home kegging using corny kegs?

I can get my hands on a CO2 tank, I've found a local shop that will do a 10lb bottle swap for $22.

I've found several places to get the corny kegs for between $30-$35 each (though I'm still willing to dumpster dive to save money).

Now I just need to see and understand the connections, the hoses, the regluators, etc....

I know the immense wealth of knowledge on this forum won't dissapoint.

(Okay, now I'm brown nosing)

$22.00 sounds pretty steep for a tank swap. Is this a welding supply house?

No. It's an "Airgas" franchise that specializes in...well...gas.

The upside is that it's only a 5 minute drive from my work. I'm not having much luck finding welding shops in my immediate area.
