Default Power Steering Removal and Installation help?

I did a quick search on the forums, and came up with nothing.
I am wondering what is all involved with putting power steering in a car that does not have power steering, along with a tilting steering column.

I would imagine the column is not too hard, and I have found a car with power steering + all the parts, I just need to strip them out.

Anyone ever written a tutorial up?

The car that has power steering is a 1990-1991 Civic Hatchback, Dx.
The car it is going into is a 1990 Civic Hatch, Cx.

Any help is appreciated! I am hoping to go to the junk yard again tomorrow, so quick replies are even more appreciated!

The column is the same I think. You would need to swap out the rack and pinion unit, and install the pump, hoses, etc. Also have the wheels aligned when you are done.
