Hi ACE-group!

I'm a "newbie" with the ACEdb system and although I have figured out how
to use the most basic features of the database there are some aspects
that I can't seem to find enough documentation on to even get started.
Two things in particular:  The Mapping classes - how are they used and
exactly what data must appear in each field in order for the maps to be
generated (and doesn't a map need to be 'rooted' somehow?).  Secondly
the Grids - the documentation available on the net appears to be for
experienced users... I can't even figure out how to begin!   What data
belongs in a 'lines at' , 'space at', 'size'... what is the difference
between 'XY labelling' and 'A1 labelling'?  What on earth is a 'virtual
row'??  the problem, clearly, is that I don't even know what the tags
*mean* so I haven't got a hope of putting the correct type of data into
them :-)

If anyone has the time to walk me through this process baby step by baby
step I would REALLY appreciate it,
