package maintain help

hello i have some (hopefully simple) questions about
package maintaining that the howto ot tldp didn't
readily cover. example i dont understend the postinst
and prerm scripts well i do understand what theyre for
just i dont understand certain parts for example i
have a package of shell scripts ive created that i
want to install into the system so i follow the howto
and everything is fine till the mentioned scripts my
question is what do i need to do  in the scripts just
to install the files into the dir everything ive taken
from the (dont remember but holds examples of post and
pre scripts)dir fails the install and i must commont
out the lines in  in the /var/lib/dpkg/<dirname>/ dir
i guess a helpful would be to gimme a howto on
postinst and prerim scripts what to do and whatnot to do.
