was stringing up my guitar when i ran into a few problems trying to load up.

what is the best way to string up a guitar? is there a place that tells or shows how to string up? and when i attempted to string up the string was so close to the fret board that it made a bunch of twaning sounds. what can i do to fix this problem. im using elixir light strings on a start up fender strat squire electric guitar. thanks
