Calibrating your imac

Hi, if your like me; one of the new imac owners, your finding just how difficult it seems to be to calibrate your monitor. I have been reading a number of posts regarding this topic and have tried to filter out some of the better information on the subject.
Update: have now calibrated my two monitors with success. I bought an eye-one display 2. Not to say this is the only one out there; just the one I have.
Here are a some flash tutorials that will be help explain how it all works. JonL
