Actions in Elements help please

I'm struggling to understand whether or not I can add some ATN files (actions?) that I've downloaded to Elements 6.

There are some good articles on the web but they all seem very involved and some suggest that you require the grown up Photoshop to prepare the actions for adding them to Elements?!

They are simply image enhancement software actions but despite the best efforts of a couple of you who have replied to PMs I appear to be failing.

A recent article in Photoshop Technique suggests dragging & dropping them into the Elements Plug Ins sub folder but this doesn't seem to work for me. What needs done to an ATN file (in idiot terms please) to allow Elements to recognise it?

It may simply be I'm out of my depth!!!

Thank you,

Thanks Adam - that article is what i'm after - complex but easy to follow!
