mask for fading in Photoshop

I'm new to Photoshop, and web images in general.  I have version 6.0.  I have a large line drawing I would like to fade out like it was a gradient.  I think I need to make a mask of the gradient and apply it to the line drawing.  What steps do I take to do this?  Sorry for such a newbie question.  I can't find anything like this in the documentation.

Check page 217 of your manual. You need to create an alpha channel which you can use to create a selection. Basically create a gradient in a channel, load it as a selection and delete from your line layer, or fill with white on a layer above that.

Or try page 197 in Photoshop 6 User Gudie.

I find easier to do a gradient in the mask.
Instead of useing a alpha channel.

Sorry for not responding sooner... I sometimes can't get onto this site lately for some reason.  

Both suggestions worked for me.  I'm going to split the points.  I have to go to community support. Back ASAP.
