Well Nate, you really do need a pgn reader, I take it you have one before I start ?
Chesspad is good, it's a free download..
Personally I have just taken a drawn game of my own and basically started adding a few moves beyond that games natural conclusion. I've taken a FEN or EPD of the final position of that game and placed that fen within a pgn. If you hit 'reply and quote' you'll see how I formed this board..all taken from the original which I'll also leave the full pgn for beneath that.
We can come back to whatever aspect you're struggling with..one step at a time eh
Don;t forget to hit 'reply and quote' to see how each was formed and that the bottom boards final position is the basis for the firsts fen \ epd...let me know what is 'vague' lol and I'll do my best to explain...
Edit: You can add comments at any stage, offer alternative lines etc..as I say, a step at a time eh...it's best to grasp fully and move on, rather than not really understanding the basics and 'stumbling' through it all...well, that's my take anyway...
