Default Working / revised set up instructions ?

I have one previous attempt to get the sample site up and running, and began with 174 errors and eventually got the list down to 30 or so and that was as far as I could get.
I am about to try again with a clean start. I wasn't sure if there was a site for this book or if p2p was up and running, but I was happy to find this forum. I then read through the 11 pages of posts, finding a few items on my list.
The set up instructions are pretty simple, but it seems most people run into a variety of issues, as I did. And I have some experience recreating multiple project.net sites on new machines (from the MS curriculum classes), so I know it never goes quite as easy as it is described.
So my overall question is “Is there a better document for getting the site up, Are there additional resources I should check"

I have the most recent Updated VB code from around 6/2003
I am using VS.NET 2003 on Win2000 SErv Pack 3, with SQL 2000, and am using VB

After setting up the web share for IIS, my first attempt to open the solution file was greeted by errors which I can state were mostly "can not locate file" types. If the exact messages at this point are important I will document them on my next attempt.
Upon looking at Solution explorer, I saw that almost really nothing but the folder structure was recognized, so I added all the files to the project. I was able to set the SQl connection without issues.
With the first build attempt the majority of errors where in modules "News Manager" and "Polls". I ended up excluding these from the build and commented up or deleted references to these modules when I finally seemed to hit a dead end.

I was also wondering where the references were to the child projects and their assemblies. This is the area where I have seen problems previously

Finally (and I know this is a long post) If there is a methodology for working through the issue outside of the task list, like a check of system references, project references, permissions, etc
