animated icons...

I tried to peruse under memories to find a suitable tutorial in regards to making animating icons (like the ever popular movie..or tv animated icons). I'm more of an illustration man...I need to see illustrations, and most if not all tutorials in the memories categorized under PS CS don't have images anymore. I had PS 7 for Mac (it's now R.I.P), and it was easy with IR. Now I have PS CS3 for PC. And things are a little different (like opening up .gif files).
So what I'm trying to ask is...

Can you point me to the tut that explains the best way to extract frames (what is the best program that works with Vista) and a step by step explanation on how animate them. Sorry if my questions is a bit long...I tried...
Thanks in advance.
