trying to port blender guru's grass tut to 2.5

After successfully completing Andrew Price's tutorial on grass with 2.49, I am now trying to do it in 2.5 (on his website he mentions that he had done this so I know it can be done) I'm not sure exactly what I'm doing wrong so I'm attempting to post a screen shot of all of my settings. Can some one ...

downloading test builds

Ok....it could be right in front of me, but where do you download the latest test build for 2.5? Is there site someplace with a bunch of them? Are there test builds from the blender people. I ask because I've seen tutorials that reference a specific build but I don't know where to go and get it, and...

construction planes?

does blender have the ability to create custom construction planes? Meaning...using a temporary xyz coordinate system besides the world coordinates.

Yeah, your right about that Stiv, I was just hoping that since I'm newer at blender I would start learning the latest and greatest and when the stable release was out I would be able to hit the ground running. Fortunately I'm not too far into the tutorial to start over...Repeating is good way to lea...

where is the knife midpoint cut tool in 2.5?

I've done some searching and have not found the knife midpoint cut tool. I did find the knife tool, but it only allows 1 click of the LMB and makes cuts i am not desiring. Just so you know, I'm following the "Captain Blender" tutorial from the "Introducing Character Animation with Blender" book, whi...

Yes I have done that, but there is no place in that area to select a .jpeg file.

The only options I get are

Render result
size
transparency
and offset

Previously you would go under view and choose the background image button. That is also missing.

importing background image in 2.5

I have found where you toggle the visibility of a background image in 2.5, but I can't find where you import and image (locate the file etc.) Am I just that blind or is it some place I don't know of yet with the new version?
