remote programing '98 Astro

I lost the remote keyfob for my Astro and bought 2 new ones on E-bay, but I need the reprograming instructions. I know there's a website where you can find them, (found it once when I had to reprogram my Pontiac remote) but can't find it now!
Thanks

Here you go

Ground pin 4 to pin 8 of the data link connector (DLC). The receiver will respond as follows:
- The doors will lock and unlock within 2 seconds.

- The liftgate window release (E54) will be activated within 2 seconds.

Simultaneously press and hold the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on one of the transmitters until the locks cycle. This will take approximately 10 seconds. The receiver will respond as follows:
- The doors will lock and unlock within 2 seconds.

- The liftgate window release (E54) will be activated within 2 seconds.

- Do not wait more then 60 seconds between transmitters or the receiver will exit the programming mode.

Repeat step 2 for each transmitter, four transmitter can be programed to this vehicle.
Remove the jumper wire from the DLC.
Verify that the RKE is functioning correctly:
- Lock and unlock the doors.

- Activate the liftgate window (E54).
