Default Really stupid question- how do you install a cargo net?

Sorry if this sounds dumb
I just got a cargo net (p/n 25635215)from gmpartsdirect. It came in a bag with no instructions, and looks like a piece of net with four loops in the corners.
Now, our car has more than four hooks in the trunk. There are two sets of two on the rear, two hooks on the floor and two more on wheel wells.
For now the net is streched between the ones on the back, but I keep wondering what the others are for- do they make several kinds of nets?

2001 SE stock (99800 miles)

I use the lower 2 hooks on the back behind the tail lights and the 2 on the floor for my net. This holds grocery bags and smaller items more secure. If you want to secure larger items such as luggage or big boxes then use the hooks on the wheel wells and the upper hooks behind the tail lamps. My car is an SSEi 2000. Not sure what you have cause theres no desc in your signature. Hope this helps.

reagle,
Like they used to tell us in submarines, the only dumb question is the one you don't ask. So, thank you for asking. You can configure the cargo net a few different ways as outlined by brian. For future reference put your year/trim level in the signature area, this will help us when replying to posts. I'm assumimg you have a 00+.

On the 2000-2005 Bonneville there a few ways to install it. When I get home today I'll take some pics and show you what the best or **dealer correct** way is. I had to think about it alot before I installed mine there were 6 hooks! Thats to many for my little brain my Impala was a whole lot simpler! I should have them posted within 6-7 hours. Hold on!
