installing a new window/vinyl siding issues


Hey all.
I have a window that I want to install in the kitchen where there was no window before.
The main problem I foresee is how to deal with the vinyl siding.
I don't know the first thing about siding, but from what I can see:
it comes in strips of two rows
the bottome of one is hooked into the top of the next.

other than that, I don't know how to take it down, how much of it I have to take down (or if I jut cut right into it), how to trim the window when I'm done, etc.

I haven't seen a book on vinyl siding anywhere, but I have seen a lot of the parts, tools, and the actual siding at Lowe's.

Anybody know of a solid tutorial or book?
Thanks
Gary

You need to take the siding down. This should answer most of your questions, about the siding anyway.

And you will need one of these.
