Thanks for the replies.
Smashwords provides a pretty comprehensive guide here http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/52
You can download it for free as a pdf or whatever suits you. At first reading it all seemed pretty bamboozling to me, but just this weekend my wife and I sat down and went trough it a step at a time and I got my new short story uploaded with no problems. Once formatted for Smashwords the manuscript is easily uploaded to Amazon et al.
Hope this helps!
