hey mrsfudge...i haven't really fiddled with the interface myself because i like the simple default layout, but good luck.
one thing though, make sure that you use guides that use the latest version...I think there was an interface change in the more recent versions. Someone else on these forums may be an expert on the visual stuff...I'm only interested in audio.
the media library is almost a one click setup, and it's slick and fast (unlike PC itunes) but I'm at work so i can't tell you which buttons to click
anyway, woohoo, you have slightly better sound than before
