Default Tips For A DyeSub xfer Newbie?

Hi,
Ive purchased a Epson 1410 (1400) and converted it to Dye Sub, it was only a cheap conversion with cheap ink till i get it all going the will use some good ink.
I was wondering if someone can share some info for me including some questions i have below.


When i print i have a profile i got for my machine, how do use it so it outputs through it in CS4 PS or Ill.

When i print a image on heat transfer paper how long do i wait till i can put in the heat press? Is there a dye time.

How do i tell which side is the transfer print side on the paper i got and if its self peel or not?

What would your recommended heat temp and time settings be as a starting point. the press doesn't have a pressure setting.

Any other pointers that could be of use to me?

Thanks all in advance.
