Hi Rage
well doorknobs are really quite easy to fit, most door knobs come with instructions on how to fit them, but a few points to remember are what type of lock is fitted if any, if there is one fitted you need to check on the size, ie thickness of the spindle, also you need to check on the backset of the lock, the backset is the size of the lock from the front leading edge to the centre of the spindle hole in the lock, your door knob should not be greater from the leading edge to the centre of the spindle
than the backset of your lock otherwise it may foul the door when it is opened or closed
some door knobs and door furniture as these add on door parts are commonly known come with a template, this is a printed page that is held or stuck onto the door leaf you then cut out and/or drill where the page tells you using the template for guidence ie cut through the template whilst in place..
I hope that this helps you, Handyman
