Help requried with directory plugin


I am struggling to make sense of my directory plugin. I am new to wordpress and thought it would be easy to get my directory as good as yours. I don't know where to begin. I have been working on it for hours and haven't come to any resolution. Please please can you help me. I don't even think I am installing it correctly. Would it be possible for you to start me me off. I want to use your template but dont know how to. I could give you my details..

Thanks in advance
