While you can learn to write the .bst, it is probably sufficient to
use the makebst program.  I have a link from my page


to makebst:

   MakeBst is a program for automatically making bst files.
   If you have LaTeX2e (which you should!) then to run the program just type

   tex makebst 

It's a pain if you don't get it right because one has to do it all
over again (as far as I know), but it can generate a bst for you.
