I am a casual/ infrequent user of ArcMap 9.2 and usually work with existing data and features. I have a need to create a point feature set, 82 libraries in 3 cities. With the hope of making a .shp file out of this.

For my street paths data I will be using US Census Tiger 2008, edges shp files, containing the fields: FID, STATEFP, COUNTYFP, TLID, TFIDL, TFIDR, MTFCC, FULLNAME, SMID, LFROMADD, LTOADD, RFROMADD, RTOADD, ZIPL, ZIPR, FEATCAT, HYDROFLG, RAILFLG, ROADFLG, OLFFLG, PASSFLG, DIVROAD, EXTTYP, TTYP, DECKEDROAD, ARTPATH, PERSIST, GCSEFLG, OFFSETL, OFFSETR, TNIDF, TNIDT, CLASS, HWY_TYPE, HWY_SYMBOL

101 E Central Blvd Mission KS 66202
[snip] 80 other similar addresses
500 Springfield Pike Kansas City MO 64114

The ArcMap tutorial Geocoding_in_ArcGIS_Tutorial, starts off byCreating a new address locator. I can't get this to work and am stuck there.
I am not sure where to start and could use some help. I guess that the terminology for this is 'geocoding addresses'. I have the ESRI ArcMap Tutorial files, PDF's and data but am having trouble getting started.

I would hope to wind up with a feature set/table like the Tiger arealm layer containing the fields: FID,, Shape STATEFP, COUNTYFP, ANSICODE, AREAID, FULLNAME, MTFCC
Thanks

If memory serves, I believe you need your street and address table stored in a geodatabase (personal or file) before you can create the address locator. Maybe not the address table but definitely the streets.

I also recommend using the standardize tools on your address table:

Hope that helps.

Why don't you try some online geo-coding tools, say http://www.batchgeocode.com/. It will generate lat long values for the address which you can then import in the ArcMap. Or you can use Global Mapper, which again locates geocoding information from the online address locator service.
