Civic window replacement help needed

I've been searching all around the 'net for instructions on replacing a driver side 'rear quarter window' on a '97 Civic Ex (2 door sedan). Not much luck there.
I can probably get an OEM window from ebay or a few lower priced honda parts dealers, but I'm not sure if I'll need a new seal or spacers or anything else, like urethane sealant or sealing tape..? Or special tools?
I don't like the idea of having a 1 foot by 2 foot piece of glass replaced for no less than $260.00, and so I'd like to know if anyone here has any experience or tips that might help me to make this a 'do-it-myself' job? Any help would be very much appreciated.

Why don't you look in the yellow pages for Auto Glass shops. They will give you a free estimates. My experience is that it was not as expensive as I would have thought. I have installed glass and would not do it again......too much work for too little savings. Charlie

Actually, that's what I did (yellow pages) before posting here.
I called Safelite and a few others, and the lowest replacement price was $260.00. [I once bought a whole car for less :) ]
I found a few used OEM windows for around $70.00, and a few new OEM windows for around $170.00.
So I was thinking I could save myself around $200.00 doing it myself with a used window. Well, that, minus any other materials I'd probably need. I just need to know the proper way of doing it.
