Question Wiring my pots...help needed.

I am renovating my basement and I am in the process if wiring a total of 9 pot lights to a 15 amp circuit. I will be running wire from the panel to start. 5 pots on a standard switch and 4 on a 600 dimmer. Could someone run me through the basics of doing this?
This curcuit will only contain the 9 pots and the two swiches.
Many, many thanks in advance.

Medic.

This site shows one light and switch

you would splice the cirucit power supply either before the switch or at the supply side of the switch to go to your other switched light cirucit.

Run 12/2 for your lighting circuit if possible. 14/2 will support 15 amps, although wiring with 12/2 allows you to step up to 20 amps, if necessary, and has less voltage drop as well.
