Painting Metal Roof?

It's been raining here for 12 days straight, and our metal roof seems to be leaking in a few spots. The roof is old, but I guess these metal roofs can last forever if properly cared for. There are no glaring rust problems, but a few spots with some faint discoloring through the last coat of paint. I should have worked on it this summer, but now I'm stuck waiting for a break in the weather before winter hits to get up there and paint the roof. If anyone has advice for painting the roof, or answers to any of these questions, I would be very appreciative.

1) What are all of the steps to painting the roof? (I've read about a pressure there other equipment I should be looking into renting?)
2) What are some tips for making the job as safe as possible?
3) What kind of paint specifically should I be looking for?
4) How long should I allow for the paint to dry before the next rain/snowfall?

Thanks for your quick response. I think I see that the rain should stop for a few days this weekend...Maybe I can climb up there then.
