thats cool, but i don't relly understand diagrams and such so if someone knew of some pictures and instructions for adding line out, it would be appreciated

From the diagram, looks like you'd be interested in pins 2, 3, and 4.
2 is the ground, 3 is the left audio channel, and 4 is the right audio channel.

Splice your line out cable and attach the wires from the line out to the dock pins where appropriate.

You might have to do some work to figure out which is which on the cable you are using, though.
