bunni is on a distinguished road

I've recently installed openfoam, and am trying to learn how to use it. I've got the user Guide 1.6 (24/july/09). I've worked through chapter 2, which has lovely clear examples to follow. But, now I'm not sure where to go - trying to write my own little test case, I'm clearly doing something wrong, but I don't know where to go to fix it. For fun, I was just trying to do a geometry that was flipped (left/right, or (-1,0,0)) of the example in 2.1.9 (cavity clipped). But, I don't want a moving top wall, I want an inlet/outlet etc. I don't quite seem to have enough info to do that. Any idea where I might go?

Also, I'm most interested in eventually working with the FSI and MHD parts of the code. where might I find tutorials to go through those?
