Help configuring emacs

Hi,

I am using emacs now after some months with vim (nothing agains vim, in fact I love it, but everyone around me is using emacs and xemacs) and I need some configuration help. How may I configure emacs to look like code examples in this page which is good for my eye.

Thanks in advance,

~faizlo
