How to make realistic dust blowing up from ground like helicopter landing?

I've got a video on how to do it in lightwave, but cannot figure it out using max.

I am not very good with max's particles yet.

(I am mainly a modeler/texturer for a company)

Big particles with smoke/alpha mapped onto them, small particles for dust, pflow and some wind/deflectors etc.

It`s fairly logical but u got to learn particles first.

I do understand particles...but just never used them much.

I usually use after effects/combustion or magic particles from Astralax.
I need these particles to be in 3d and to react as the plane is landing/moving.

Honestly I was hoping for a Grotey Jing tutorial...hehe.

One of the sample tutorial files that used to come with max was a helicopter kicking up spray.

Have you looked through the particle sample files that come with Max on disk 2?
