There are a couple of screws holding in the bottom of the armrest. The ashtray and cig lighter bezel need to be pulled out. Easy to do. The shift boot can then be removed by pulling up gently on the edge where the ashtray used to be. There are a couple of screws in each footwell, covered with little pastic buttons. They pop right off. Pull the e-brake up and slide the console out and up, sliding the e-brake boot off over the handle as you go.
A couple things to help you out during your stay here - check out the search function, located at the top of each page, and see if the question you have has already been answered. For the most part, almost all basic concepts have been answered more than once, and in many different ways. After that, feel free to post your question... posting duplicate questions on the board often lead to people flaming you, or answers that are anything but useful.
Edit2: You need to remove the shift plate - pull up, then rotate the bulb out, then do a shifter removal and it will all come out... maybe if you're having issues with doing this, just leave the console in and hack at it... because putting the O/D back together is a bit more tricky than taking things apart...
