Custom Icons - How to?

I just got photoshop CS4 finally. and I've been dabbling with tools and tutorials and walk throughs and just having a blast.

I'm looking to create some custom icons for Rocketdock since every set I download is always missing a program or two that I use.

Does anyone have any links, tips, starting points, etc that they would like to share? A nice tutorial on How to start would be awesome.

Both good links. Learned a bit from them. But I was thinking more along the lines of Photoshop CS4 tutorials and/or tips.
