a few questions as i have taken my first steps MSwin7

WINDOWS 7 MEDIACENTRE and set-up
Hi I have recently purchased a MS Windows Media Centre and Im keen to set this up as I want.

Can anyone help with the following questions?

= Intitial Windows 7 Media Centre SetUp guides (anyone got a link)
= Ensure that Media Centre only retrieves files from a specific NAS share
= Explain the process of how Media Centre obtains movie data in relation to cert, actors, year etc etc... In the past I have used a PopCornHour device, whereby movie walls were created using a .bat file. How does the MS movie Wall in Windows 7 refresh or how do I get the files to show.
= Naming convention for Movies when using Media Centre. Many of my files (mkv,mp4,avi etc etc) have uniques named that I created. When I wanted to point the data for these files from IMDB i created a .nfo file. How will Media Centre work with this or will i need to renamed all my movies ?
= Existing Nfo files for Movies stored on NAS share will these need to be retian, used or just deleted.
