Need Help: Poker

My Brothers and I started recently playing poker on Saturday nights, and my oldest Brother is a litte confused as to how the rules go. We play with wild cards, but in general I told him that a Royal Flush beats 4 of a kind, because theres only 4 of each in a deck. Since we play with wild cards, I told him that 5 of a kind beats a Royal Flush.......

Anyways, can someone PM me the rules and how they go in order, so I can show them to him. Please dont send the link, Im blocked here at work from seeing links, so thats why I was asking if someone could maybe "click, drag and copy" them and paste them in a PM.


Thanks.

-------------------------------------
So what we're left with in determining if a five-of-a-kind beats a royal flush is:

1) Is a royal flush better than a straight flush in your game?
a) If yes, goto 2.
b) If a royal flush is equal to a straight flush in your game, 5-of-a-kind is the best possible hand at your table.

2) Is the wild card one of those that makes us the royal flush?
a) If yes, goto 3.
b) If the wild card is not of 10JQKA, there are more ways to make a royal flush than 5-of-a-kind. In this case, the best hand at your table is five-of-kind.

3) A royal flush is specific ranking hand and one of 10JQKA are wild in your game. In this case, the best hand at your table is a royal flush.

The numbers:

No Wild 1 Wild Royal Wild
5-of-a-Kind N/A 48 48
Royal Flush 4 80 20
Straight Flush 32 576 576

I also think that it depends on how you make the 5 of a kind and royal flush. Obviously if one guy has a royal flush without wilds, he trumps everyone. The easier the wild makes it, the less weighted it should be.
