Sometimes tons of information causes more problems than bits of information. With RR there is a ton of information. Try this help file first of all, this may help you. Also check out the installer. This has most of the up to date options within it, so will help you get started.
Have a look in the help file and search for the options you need. It can be difficult getting started, but RR is highly configurable, which is an advantage for the knowledgable and a pita for the newbs.
But don't forget, we all started where you are now, and lots of us are still around and using the software to full effect.
