Default How do you install 400ex rings?

I'm rebuilding a 400EX top and everything is going well I just need some help. What Rings go where there is a polished copper ring that's either the top or second and then there's your oil ring's and 2 identical small rings that go on the bottom right?

The opening in the rings (gaps) can't line up (otherwise you'll loose compression)...usually there are pins in the piston ring grooves to prevent this...
