how to do driveway alignment?

I keep reading about how people do an alignment in their driveway using a tape measure but I haven't found the official 'how to' yet. Can anyone help point me in the right direction?

Pretty cool writeup...

Instead of painting the tire I use a black sharpie to mark the spots on the treads. Also instead of a milk carton I use two jack stands to get the same measurement location side to side and front to back.
