Dinan Chip Installation

Hey Guys

I'm picking the chip up on Wednesday around 4pm and i would like to install it myself but i have no manual for the car...I know that the ECU is in the engine by the firewall on the left but i don't know what to do after taking the covers off to get to the ECU. Do i disconnect the battery first. (People have been telling me i don't need to woory about it). Do i have to worry about grounding myself so i don't fry the chip or ECU. I know that once it is in i do have to run the car for about 5 mins or so to let everything adjust. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
