need help with starlight xpress, phd and cg5

I guess my questions are these.
1) what software do you use, lodestar, co-star or superstar specific? PhD? or something else.
2) I am sorry if this asks to much, but could you give me a step by step stupid person instructions on how to setup my camera to the mount and have it work with whatever software is most user friendly.
3) What settings are you using for your Cg-5 mounts? Which com port?
I searched for some info on the net and didn't come up with anything that really helped, some said to plug in the cable to the hand controller rather than the mount, but the plug in the controller is a smaller version.

You need to plug in the white cable with the 5 pins and the other end goes into your mounts autoguider port (looks like the phone cable end.)
If using PHD, you chose SX then choose the lodestar.. Under the mount menu you need to choose on-camera. (everyone forgets this step)
Let us know..
