in Factory. you will use a static method that will return and object of type x and store this object in a variable of the same type x.

Circle c = Factory.CreateCircle();

in Abstract Factory, the difference is that the return object will be stored in super abstract class.

Shape c = Factory.CreateCircle();

The guys above already gave you some good advice, but I had always found http://jamesthornton.com/eckel/TIPatterns/html/Chapter06.html a good explanation for all types of Factories.
