If you really want to be safe then buy an antistatic wrist strap for $5, but computer parts are really a lot more durable than a lot of guides make them out to be. As long as you try to hold the components by the sides then you'll be fine. The motherboard manual should have some easy instructions with it. Do you already have another computer you could use. Just open up the side and see where everything is and then use it as a sort of template for building your own.

EDIT: If you ever get stuck, send me a screenshot and then I'll open up on paint and type in code for ya =]
this is what i have made so far.

basically a joke..

Lol..K. If you double click on your command button you will get a screen with space for code. At the top right of that window it should say Click, then top left of that window should say whatever you named that command button. And what that means is that whatever you code in there will occur when the object (command button) is click. Try creating a label. Leave the name as label1

then under one of the command buttons tye:
label1.caption = "text"

I'm pretty sure that line of code is self-explanatory =]
