Installing the Pi Cobler
Power it down before continuing. Many have messed up the next step.
sudo shutdown -h now
Unplug the Pi and read about the Adafruit Pi Cobbler Kit. There are three version available. Try to use one with at least one 26-pin side.
You must have the side of the ribbon with the white stripe in the corner of the Raspberry Pi. You must have the side of the ribbon with the white stripe in the corner of the Raspberry Pi. You must have the side of the ribbon with the white stripe in the corner of the Raspberry Pi. Once you do, power up the Pi again.
Turn the Raspberry Pi on. Most Raspberry Pi’s should have the GPIO configuring. Make sure the directory /sys/class/gpio is installed. If it isn’t look at Adafruit’s Configuring GPIO to make sure you have all the modules

What to do next
Start with the Idiot's Guide To Getting Started with Raspberry Pi's GPIO Pins. You may want to unplug the Cobbler while you are wiring. From there you can try some more advanced tasks. Take a look at some of the following for inspiration.
