So i finished a document with latex, and I finally got latex instaled a few weeks ago, but haven't had the chance to use it yet.

I was wondering the code i need for a basic document (no notation) with just words.

I was thinking that I just need a references page at the end, but I think I also need proper Chicago style, which I'm not sure completely what it is of the top of my head, not the proper code for latex.

So far all I know is

\begin{document}

\end{document}

What else will I need? :)

One can find many templates and sample files all over the net. I'm sure you can bastardise one of them to suit your needs.

Heres a good place to start: http://www.math.duke.edu/computing/tex/templates.html (mainly being the first in a google search )
