Sewing machine trouble

I recently borrowed a Singer Athena 2000 Electronic.
This is an older model of what I'm used to working with so I'm having a little bit of trouble even just threading it. Unfortunately, the owner of the machine didn't have time to teach me how to use it so I'm in a little bit of a bind.

Can anyone help? I need to know how to thread the machine, refill the bottom bobbin etc. etc. any help that you could lend I would be grateful for. Thankies.

I've gotten how to thread it but I'm STILL having trouble with the bobbin. I have no everlasting clue on how winding it works. I've found a scanned manual of the machine on the singer site, but I do not understand what they are talking about. any chance someone can help me with this?

Worst case scenario: Thread the bobbin manually. Is there a picture of this sewing machine?

I thought the bobbin winding thing is always in the same sorta area, no matter which machine you're using...oh well

yeah, I can't get my machine to sew straight it just want to do zigzags....

Neko, did you change the seam setting on the machine?
