P C Advisor did a very good series of "How to " articles on self build. I think they are still available but cannot remember how to get them. Someone else may know.

Try the Haynes manual. I picked one up for £15 and it tells you everything..step-by-step. It's written by Kyle McRae who I think does some articles for PCAdvisor and other PC publications.
