Default Headlight aiming

I was wondering what the correct procedure was for headlight aiming was. I know the standard rule was for every 5 feet back, its 2 feet up on the wall. Does anyone know any tricks.

Thanx "TheKaddyKid"

You may find that you'll want to follow up with the "country roads" method for confirmation and fine tuning even if you manage those directions.
