Need basic help with NIMH charging/discharging rates

I am going from a fully auto (press one button) charger, to one that requires me to input what value for charge rates in amps, discharge rate in amps, and what appears to be final pack voltage for discharge.

I am trying to charge basic 1000mah NIMH packs.

Can someone tell me what values I should be inputing for standard charging as well as a discharge rate (I assume I'm looking for a number that is equal to the draw of a normal rc plane with 5-6 servos.

Bet that makes you feel great John.

Most need spoon feeding these days. Links to sites with more than one sentence answers contains so much info that they crash due to data overload.

400fe,
The Conditioning new cells and packs section in the link that Charles supplied has specific charging and discharging info. Same with the Keeping Cells Conditioned section.

I'm confused as to why that info was of no help to you.
