How to use the self-timer on a Nikon D70?

I have read my camera's manual and still don't get it and neither does my husband. How do I get my self-timer on my D70 to work? Can someone point the way to a course that will help me understand my Nikon D70 better than the manual?
Thanks in advance for the help!

  TheresaI can guide you on setting the timer, but the explanation on page 105 seems straight forward. Here goes:
1. go to your "Custom Setting" menu (looks like a pencil) and go down to item 24, "Self-Timer." Select the number of seconds delay you desire.

2. Press the "Format" button and rotate the main dial until you see a small clock symbol on the Control Panel.
3. camera is now ready for delayed shutter. Don't forget to set the "Format" back to S for single shooting afterwards.
