dried beans

ok,i've looked through the memories but can't really find a definate answer to my question: HOW DO YOU COOK DRIED BEANS??? I've got a big bag of dried white beans and would like to cook them but don't know how. know you have to soak them, but how long and how long do cook them, what's the bean to water ratio? I'm just getting tired of pasta and I'm thinking beans could have a lot of potential, but just lost when it comes to getting started.
