How to create surface datasets in regional simulation using clm5.0


Dear scientist,
Recently I want to run a regional case using CRUNCEP as forcing data and Jackson as surface datasets. However, there are two questions bothering me.
1. The correct step is using mkscripgrid.ncl to create scripgrid file ,then using mkmapdata.sh to create mapping file, then using gen_domain to create domain file, finally using mksurfdata.pl to create surface data. Am I right?
2. I don't know how to use mkscripgrid.ncl to create scripgrid file, > vi mkscripgrid.ncl ? then modify related parameters and > ncl mkscripgrid.ncl ??
3. which part in clm5.0 user guide should I read to solve this problem?
