I don't know which editor you use, but these days, the closest thing  
to the local guide are either the help files of TeXShop, or http:// 
ii2.sourceforge.net/tex-newbie.html (followed by http:// 
ii2.sourceforge.net/tex-index.html). The local guide tells you how to  
compile your documents using (La)TeX. This can be system dependent,  
and is therefore usually left out of the generic documentation.
