Insert data into two tables and retrieve last ID

I have a form that has a checkbox list.  The form gets submitted and the checkbox list is saved into an array list.  I want to save the main form data to one table and then save the ID created to the linking table with each item checked in the checkbox list.  

I want to use a stored procedure to do this, so how do I get the ID that was just inserted and how can I pass the list of checkbox values that I stored in the array list?

if the field is identity, the query to get the last inserted id (within the same session) is

with sql 2005, you have also the possiblity to get the id values when inserting multiple rows at once, using the OUTPUT clause...

I think that solves my first problem.  Now I need to know how to pass an array to a stored proc and insert the values into a linking table with the ID.
