How to wire a double switch and dimmer?

I've got three lines plus my power line coming to a two gang box. I've got two lines going to the double switch and one line going to the dimmer. I need to know how to wire the double switch and dimmer to the power. I don't have any of it hook up yet. thanks

Connect all the white together.
Conenct all the grounds together and to the switches if they have ground screws.
Connect the power black to one connection on each switch and dimmer. Use pigtails to get enough connections for the switches.
Connect one black each to the other connection on the switches and the dimmer.

You only need to make one power connection to the duplex switch (on the tab side), assuming that the tab has not been broken.
