Hopefully, you go looking and see a pattern. The simplest example is article-1, then article-2. Look at the PDF output, then see how it is done by inspecting the lyx document that goes with it.

The preparation of slide shows (Beamer presentations) is quite a bit more difficult. I've made some effort to write out the steps there.
