Tablet Weaving on an Inkle Loom

Greetings everyone!

I got an inkle loom for my Birthday, since I've been told that one can do tablet weaving on an inkle loom. But at the moment, I'm trying to figure out how to thread it (warp it?) and how exactly it would work.

I've found a couple of videos on YouTube, but they were just still-pictures and I didn't really understand it very well. I also tried looking elsewhere online, but again, just still pictures with instructions...something in my head isn't clicking when I read the instructions or look at the pictures.

Would anyone know of a place where I might find an actual video on how to thread my inkle loom for tablet weaving?

Here's my suggested threading. (photo on google+ - should be viewable if you use the following link) https://plus.google.com/photos/111117651577232086611/albums/5836788224228031841?authkey=CPSuwNjEtob1Lw

The cards would go between the adjustable tension dowel and the top/front peg. You would skip the peg typically used to tie heddles. The threads go around "in a loop" so the warp is a circle and zig-zags back and forth on the pegs.
