Default Sanding Drywall

I'm looking for some tips on sanding drywall. Does anyone have any?

Sanding drywall is merely smoothing out any bumps. The real trick is in the application of the drywall mud.

I have found this sanding page: http://www.tape-finish-texture-drywall.org/sheetrock-and-repair.html
which should take care of my needs. But, if anyone has any other suggestions please feel free to post.

Mudding is mainly what I meant. I have not started yet at all. I realize I should have mentioned mudding when I saw the page for it http://www.tape-finish-texture-drywall.org/drywall-mudding-tips.html
Thanks.
