These are to get the process to listen in the background and not tie up your command line.
Code:
listen=1
daemon=1
server=1

Yes, you make these up, no do not use the asterisks.
Code:
rpcuser=**Yourusername**
rpcpassword=**Yourpassword**

rpcconnect is useful if you are running the daemon and gpu on the same computer.  If you have multiple mining rigs, you will have to set the rpcallowip to your local net.  The asterisk is a wildcard.
Code:
rpcallowip=10.1.1.*
rpcconnect=127.0.0.1

I usually set this to a some port thats easy to remember. I can't keep up with the new coins, and their ports all the time.
Code:
rpcport=9322

If the seed nodes in the code, or the irc discovery don't work,  The dev or sometimes users will hand out a node address.  You should have upnp, or port forwarding to the p2p port of the daemon if you want to be a node.
Code:
addnode=xx.xx.xx.xx


Hope that helps.

edit:  "all of my .conf files have jibberish in them"  show ss if you can, or paste some in.  the conf files should be plain text, and be called coinname.conf.

if your using the wallet to mine you dont need a config file (mostly used for CPU Coins)

if your using an external miner (recommended for GPU mining) you need a conf file to solo mine

where does rpcuser name  and password come from? are they just made up?
they can be anything you like, just make it secure and random

Quote
do you use the asterisks?
no

Quote
is the rpcport always 9322 ?
no, but again you can set any port you like

Quote
where does the rpcallowip address come from, and so where does the rpcconnect address come from, or is it always 127.0.0.1
127.0.0.1 is your local ip address

Quote
where do you get the addnode addresses from.
should be supplied in the coins topic, if not ask for some.
to find addnodes for others use the getpeerinfo command in the debug window

not sure about your other questions

thanks for all the info.

I am going to take the plunge and see what gives.
I'll probably end up going back to cgminer, but what the hey.

I DO appreciate you both taking the time to answer.
You cleared this up for me.

Hopefully this will clear it up for more individuals, too.

Wallet mining won't use your GPU's, that's why you launch cgminer with 127.0.0.1:port
