### Hello and help!

OK so I have no idea how on earth I use Miktex to create a paper for an ACM conference. I have installed MikTex and can create a pdf that says Hello World. But where do I put the acmsiggrapg files http://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template for MikTex to pick them up. I don't know what to do, or where to look. Anyhelp to a newbie would be welcome.

I get this.... when I try and sync the mikex package manager
`MiKTeX Problem ReportMessage: Permission denied: path="C:\Users\Jane\AppData\Local\MiKTeX\2.9\miktex/data/le\df2c24cb21984fa85003c1ecc818ff83.fndb"Data: path="C:\Users\Jane\AppData\Local\MiKTeX\2.9\miktex/data/le\df2c24cb21984fa85003c1ecc818ff83.fndb"Source: Libraries\MiKTeX\Core\File\win\winFile.cppLine: 488MiKTeX: 2.9OS: Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit, Service Pack 1, build 7601Invokers: non-existing/explorerSystemAdmin: noPowerUser: noRoot0: C:\Users\Jane\AppData\Roaming\MiKTeX\2.9Root1: C:\Users\Jane\AppData\Local\MiKTeX\2.9Root2: C:\ProgramData\MiKTeX\2.9Root3: C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9UserInstall: C:\Users\Jane\AppData\Roaming\MiKTeX\2.9UserConfig: C:\Users\Jane\AppData\Roaming\MiKTeX\2.9UserData: C:\Users\Jane\AppData\Local\MiKTeX\2.9CommonInstall: C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9CommonConfig: C:\ProgramData\MiKTeX\2.9CommonData: C:\ProgramData\MiKTeX\2.9`

Uh, permission issues... I know that happens with MiKTeX, and solutions maybe either installing and extending MiKTeX only as user, or doing the same but both as administrator. I prefer to install TeX Live though.
