Warning: Hoplessly newbish question

And I mean to the absolute basis of newbishness.


I would like to make a winamp skin, but I couldn't, for the life of me, understand how the hell you make one. Maybe I missed something in the set-up guide, but to me, it just simply did not explain how to make one.

If someone could explain to me, with not too many technical details, how the hell you make a skin. And I mean from writing the code in notepad to actually making it into a skin. Include massive skipping of steps if required, I'm just wondering like someone who understands that you need HTML to make a website, but doesn't understand how to put it from code to page.

After you get over thinking it's a pain in the ass, it's freakishly easy (at least to get basic to intermediate stuff done). In addition to frisbeemonkey's site, check out the tutorial here on Winamp's site (the Development link at the very top of the page).
