mY MAIN PROB. IS WITH THE CONFIG. COMMANDS, im not sure how many, and I get all mixed up.

I must point out that you haven't told us what make/model/brand Access Router your using. 3Com/Cisco/ and all the others that support frame relay all use different O/S and as such use different commands. Pretty difficult

Sorry, it's a Cisco router, no specific model but it uses DLCI, interface relay, encapsulation frame relay(Cisco/IETF)
frame relay LMI- Type ANSI , ARP

First make a drawing of the network, along with the DLCI's for the frame relay interconnections between the routers. Preferably with individual drawings (including IP's) for each site including hubs/switches/network and work station printers with their port connection to the network.

With Cisco you can download the configuration to a text file edit it off line and download it back into the router. 2 copies would work best one for the router and one with annotations for what the command/configuration is used for.

*First consider whether u r gonna hv a fully meshed or a partial n/w.
*Determine the interface to be configured.
*Next the type of frame relay encapsulation
#encapsulation frame-relay {cisco/ietf}
default is cisco,and for non cisco products u got to giv ietf.
*Then to resolve split horizon,subinterface are used,if its gonna be a single vc then there is no need for subinterface.
#interface serialnumber.sub {point-to-point/multipoint}
*DLCI and LMI type both will be provided by the Service providers.
*For global DLCI., ie., wen the gateway frame-relay router's interface is provded with only one DLCI Number...
//subinterface command//
#frame-relay interface-dlci <dlci number>
dlci number-the number which links or correlates to the dlci.
*Finally the traffic shaping:
For every Virtual circuit...
A map class is created for the VC and mapped with the particular interface
#map-class frame-relay name
#frame-relay traffic-rate average
#frame-realy adaptive-shaping becn
#frame-realy cir/bc/be/mincir {in/out}
bc,be and mincir all depends upon the value of cir..
At last ,
#class <name>

If you've never configured routers before your best bet is to find sombody locally that you can schedule to come to your office and configure it for you. Cisco can be a real pain when you've never done it before. If you have just recently purchased the router new your reseller or Cisco will usually walk you through your basic setup on the phone.

The first thing you have to do is put a routing block diag on paper. You wil go nuts trying to do this one in your head!

Who is allowed to go where, What is your frame specs, ( total bandwidth vs CIR), is there internet access included with this and if so which router is it going on?

Is this a tunneling setup or dedicated lines. Are servers involved?

Do you want coke in your whiskey?

You got some serious stuff going on here.

There are quite a few more questions that need to be addressed but these will give us a good start.
