From google homepage, select "iGoogle" button at top right.
This gives you the default iGoogle page, which you can then edit.
Then hit sign in. If you have a google/gmail account alreadt, just provide your login details, otherwise you'll need to hit the "create account now" link.
Once logged in and on the iGoogle page (which should now become your standard google page as long as you allow the google cookie to be saved), you can then select eiether the "Add Stuff" on the right hand side to add feeds etc, or modify the theme (ie the motorbike backdrop on my page) using the "Select Theme" link.
They have a large number of feeds as standard, plus you can add any RSS feeds using the "Add Feed or Gadget" link.
Ribnet for example has an RSS feed at http://www.rib.net/forum/external.php?type=rss2
