Unhappy '95 Neon

I realize that this is primarily for Subaru's but my beater car in down and my WRX is getting beaten up in the parking lot at work now that Spring is approaching (they do the lawn and blow the parking lot during the week with the cars there).
It has a broken or leaking head gasket. Starts up fine even after sitting in snow for 2 months but, as expected, it overheats quickly especially under stress. My mechanic said it needs a new head gasket.
I've never done any type of engine work but it seems like a good project for my 18 year old son ('00 2.5RS) and myself.
Can anyone give or lead my to a site or book that might give some detailed instructions as to how to tackle this job.
Thanks,
Joe

I had a 96. I believe if you bring it to a a Chrysler / dodge dealer, they'll replace it for little or no money, just the cost of parts, depending on the milage. This is s a really common problem on early neons. I'd recomend getting the haynes manual, which I've got, I'd sell it to ya for $20 plus S&H.
this is what it looks like:

Cept mine has a spot on it where the color is worn off. Other than that, it's in fine condition.
