Are there any video tutorials for installing chips and soldering?

    Here is a vid I found on youtube. It's in spanish but gives you a nice visual on how the soldering process goes on the Wii. I'm in the process of installing a Wasabi on mine and I'm stuck on soldering onto the chip legs. They are so tiny so you have to be pretty precise. If this is going to be your first time ever soldering, as it is mine, its best to practice on a circuitboard that isn't being used anymore. For example: an old remote control, dialup modem, stereo, etc. Here's the video.

    As is a nice precision tip, with a flat edge to it.
