A Dansguardian how-to is seriously needed

Does anybody know of a decent how to for using Dansguardian? I am having to manually search each blacklist files for domain,urls and etc.. to either block or grant certain access. How can one block just domains or grant access to domains within Dansguardian? There is no decent how to documentation!

an example: cat /etc/dansguardian/blacklists/subject/domains|grep

add this to your list. I was doing a little research and havnt found a straight forward how-to but this at least gives you better a little better understanding of the filtering files. This dansguardian is a decent product but lack decent documentation like many other linux programs out there.

dansguardian, filter, howto
