Getting ready for the Genesis block

I'm sure I'm not the only one wanting to be ready to mine the Genesis block, so I wanted to compare notes to make sure I'm not missing anything.
I'm currently running eth POC8 in the testnet on a dedicated Ubuntu machine. I assume there will be a 1.0 release of eth just ahead of Genesis. Will there be detailed instructions, CLI parameters etc., to make sure we switch correctly from the testnet to the live net?

Also I'm not entirely clear on how to create/use a wallet. I (stupidly) didn't participate in the ether sale, so I don't have a wallet ID yet. How would a wallet be specified for mining in the live net? I know eth has the --address parameter to specify the coinbase, I'm just not clear on how to use it/create one.

Thanks in advance for clarifying.
