I need to attach an unknown pair (.MDF/.LDF) files to SQL Server. I am not familiar with SQL at all. Please give step-by-step instructions, from opening the Enterprise Manager or Query Analyzer

I have read many similar answers to similar questions, but I am so new to SQL that I don't understand the solution, because I don't know where to start from. I know I need to enter some commands, but I don't know how. Please talk me through the entire sequence from opening the Enterprise Manager, each and every option to choose to reach the result of attaching these 2 files to a new database. Then I will want to export this information to an Access database. By the way, I have SQL Server 7 teporarily installed on my desktop computer. I will not need to continue using this database, I only need to view & export the contents.
