This section is pretty quick and easy to do, because there aren't that many components. Be careful to solder in the tantalum capacitor properly! If you accidentally put it in backwards, upon power-up you will have hosed your tantalum cap, and you will need to get a new one even if it seems to work just fine. Tantalum caps are prone to random failure if put in backward.
