Check out this post More On Vinyl Siding. This site has a download feature Installing Vinyl. The 2nd item on this page has a download feature. And lastly, probably one the best tapes for an experienced DIYer, is from Hometime. Got to Roofing, Siding, and 'something' on this page and click Siding.
Ashland-Davis (which is sold at my Home Depot) will give you an installation manual if you buy their stuff. You may also want to peruse Amazon.com and Fatbrain.com for videos too! My best to ya and hope this helps.
