I had saved a site that you were able to punch in the specifics of the circuit ya wanted to make and it'd tell ya how to go about making it.
I'm pretty sure I got it from Hizzo, so it might be in a post here somewhere.
It's been awhile, but I'll see if I can find it and post back.

EDIT: Here it is.... http://led.linear1.org/led.wiz

And a search tip for this site....
To search posts about LED lights, 3 letters is too small a word, use LEDs and you'll get better results.

I like that calculator better. It gives different configuration options and gives power disipation and current draw.
