How do I render a material into a UC texture?

I’ve just finished making a helmet that I want to put into the Elder Scrolls V, Skyrim.

I’ve put a material on it that I reckon looks fantastic. Unfortunately Skyrim’s models all require a UV texture.

So how do I change that material into a UV texture?

Well first of all do you know how to UV map objects? if so do that then use the bake tools which are in the render panel. If you don’t know how to uv map just try looking up a tutorial on it.

I know how to UV map objects. I just don’t know how to use the bake tools.
