Does anyone know of a tutorial for using a single RGB LED with an Arduino Duemilanove? Answered

 I want to run a 4 legged RGB LED off of my Arduino, and do color mixing, but I cannot find a tutorial for this small project. All I really need is the sketch and maybe a schematic.

 I wrote something to test an RGB led with 3 10k pots, could be tweaked for other values, PWM values based on analog ins. I based it on the AnalogInOutSerial sketch, without the serial stuff and with more variables for the other colors.
