There is an example CDS/ISIS collection at
that describes in detail how it was created -- this is the first place
you should look for information.

You will need to change your collection configuration file to use the
correct metadata names for your database. Have a look at the doc.xml
files in the archives/HASHxxxx.dir folders of your collection to see
what the metadata names should be.

Hope this helps you get started.
