None Help building a simple test

Hello all,

I need help doing something very basic with Geant4, I hope I posted this in the right section (my apologies if not).

What I want to do is as follows (with visualization):

1.) create an air filled box 2.) Trigger gamma rays at the center of the box (emitted isotropically from a point source).

What is the minimum code I need to write for this?

As I understand it, I need three files: 1.) Detector Construction 2.) Primary Action Generator 3.) Physics List

Am I missing anything? I really would like to start writing code, but I don't know where to start. I've had a fair amount of experience with Geant3, but it seems like Geant4 requires a much larger set of files in order to run a simulation.
