ETOPO1 Colormap File and color ramp legend item

I have downloaded the ETOPO1 colormap file to use. Two questions:

1) Where should I place it within the software for use (e.g. relevant folder) and how do I make it available within the software to use?

2) How do I recreate the legend color ramp and associated text? Would it be automated or a manual process?

Using ArcGIS 10.0 SP1 on XP Pro.


Mapping Center Answer:

The bottom notes of the "Making Beautiful Maps" presentation that we gave at last year's User Conference contain step-by-step instructions for both of these.  It can be downloaded from our Other Resources - presentations page in PDF format.
