Do you just put the credit card into an ATM and punch in the pin for a cash advance?

As far as I've seen, yes. The important thing is that you have a PIN; not everybody wants a PIN, because it would make cash access too easy (for them or for others). The ATM should provide options to withdraw from Checking, Savings, or Credit Card. I'm sure you can figure it out from there.

Okay, I know I will get flamed for even asking this question on this board.

Why, did I stumble upon the Babylon 5 board again?

Oh, I see what you mean. Eh, whatever. Cash advances generally aren't a good idea, but I trust you've examined your options thoroughly. Important thing is to use them wisely, and to not let them fester for years while you happily make minimum payments.
