Please can someone help me?

i was trying to make a reload animation for my gun and I kinda need some help. I remember that in blender 2.49 there was the action editor for making the animations but in 2.57 there is not one what do i use, and is it the same procedure for adding in the animation?

If you want to use the Action Editor go to a Dope Sheet window and change the selection from DopeSheet to Action Editor using the dropdown in the header

oh ok very simple thanks.
