I have a breadmaker and I love it!
General guidelines are to put the wet ingredients in first, then the dry (except the yeast). Make a small well in the middle of the dry ingredients, and put the yeast in it.
If you are adding fruit or nuts, many breadmakers have a chime towards the end of the second kneading cycle. If you put the fruit in too early, it just gets smashed to nothing, rather than staying in chunks.
The first time I used my breadmaker, I somehow screwed it up. Maybe you'll want to have double in ingredients on hand, in case you need to make a second try.
