Aggregating data from a list using LINQ in C#

I have a list (list<>) of detail objects that I need to create another list of header objects with.
This detail list contains the following information:

Order No
Line Item
Line Item Extended Amount
Customer Name
Customer Ship to Address
Customer Ship to City/State/Zip

I want to create a list of header Information containing the following:
Order No
Customer Name
Customer Ship to Address
Customer Ship to City/State/Zip
Order Total
Line Item Count

I would think it's possible in LINQ, but I'm not as versed in LINQ as I probably should be.
Any ideas/suggestions are appreciated!

You can add others to the group by and key, but this is should get you going:

 class tester
    {
        public string orderNo;
        public string CustomerName;
        public string ShipTo;
        public int LineItem;
        public float total;
    }


            List<tester> list = new List<tester>();

            var summary =
            list.GroupBy(l => new {l.CustomerName, l.ShipTo, l.orderNo})
                .Select (g => 
                    new {
                           CustomerName = g.Key.CustomerName,
                           OrderNo = g.Key.orderNo,
                           ShipTo = g.Key.ShipTo,
                           Total = g.Sum(x => x.total),
                           LineCount = g.Count()
                    }
                    );

Hey Kyle,
Thanks for responding so quickly. I'm ready to award the points to you. I have another question: Is it possible to interpret a flag in a row and place the result in the resulting LINQ results? For instance, if one of the items in the order detail from the example above was back ordered, I would like to place a flag in the resulting LINQ results for the header that indicates that one or more items are back ordered. Is that possible?

Thanks for the quick reply! Was easier than I thought it would be. I guess when you know what you're doing, anything's easy.

Just to respond for anyone else coming across your second question, you can use the count for that:

//short hand for if Count > 0 then true else false;
 BackOrderFlag = g.Count( x=> x.BackOrdered == true) > 0 ? true : false;
