Contig assembly?

I have been spending the few days getting familiar with 
acedb.  I have managed to get most things working, except
the thing I really need: the contig display.  Unfortunately,
the documentation that I have tracked down doesn't say 
much about contigs as such and the on-line help seems not
to match what I am able to display.  

First of all, is it even possible to generate a contig
by simply specifying markers present and absent?  If not,
how does one get to this "contig editor" aluded to in the 
on-line help?  

If I am understanding the system correctly, a certain amount
of structure needs to be define in the the models file.
I found a file that had a definition for class Contig 
(the default file in the ncbi distribution give a "model 
not found error") and got as far as a graphic window with
nothing in it.   If this is the "contig-editor", there 
are no buttons (as in the physical map display) as the 
help states.  

Obviously I am pretty clueless at this point...  but 
is seems like a very worth while package and I would 
like to get this figured out....

Thanks in advance,
