I gave away my Feb/Mar issue of Mother Earth News and I believe it was that issue that had a really good article about beekeeping in it. You might try doing a search on their website: www.MotherEarthNews.com
If you are just starting do you already have a smoker, bee suit, gloves, hive tool, etc? If not, I recommend getting a beginner kit with all the tools and the initial hive.
If you order a kit everything, to include the frames and foundation comes with it. If you have the rest of the equipment or don't want it, then you have to order separate. It is kind of confusing because you have to order the hive body, the frames and the foundation. There there are several sizes of hive bodies and frames and several types of foundation.
Also, you can order hives on ebay. I ordered three complete hives on ebay. They were at a good price and came with two hive bodies, 20 frames with foundation, hive cover, and bottom board.
If you have specific questions about setting up a hive or beekeeping in general don't hesitate to send me a pm and I will help you with it.
