Floor tile step-by-step

Ok. So instead of posting 800 threads over the next few weeks...Where can I find a (correct) step-by-step installation guide for putting porcelain tile down in my kitchen. I understand the basics, but I am type-A and need it all in writing before I dive in. I'm looking for some detail, like what do I do with baseboards and quarter round? Do I lay tile under fridge and dishwasher? Can I do a 250 sf kitchen in one weekend?

I could probably do a google search, but trust you guys here more than the rest of the internet.

There are books but they aren't going to address all those details for you.

I would definitely tile under the fridge and washer if it is possible. You'd be saving yourself some potential heartache down the road.
