Using GNU autotools properly

Hi I find this a very confusing process, but correct me if I am wrong:

1. autoscan ->
2. write (by hand?)
3. automake ->
4. autoconf -> configure

The bit I am confused about is generating, looking at the documentation only makes it worse. Can I write directly?

Also why would I need configure.h, and how is that created? Autoheader?

Please end my confusion!
