For a basic recipe with great step by step pictures check out Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day. I can't remember if the link tells the exact water temp but just remember that warm water for yeast is between 110-115 degrees.
This is my bread just before baking.
This is after (minus 2 pieces). It was so delicious. Plus I still have dough left over for two more loaves. One for tomorrow and the next day I guess.
