One thing that always works well for me is to push the pistons all the way in before filling the system with fluid ; obviously the less air you've got to get rid of, the better.
Use a little rubber grease around the end of the piston, which will help them slide through the seals easily.
If you hold a seal up side-on, you'll see that the outer face (that is, the part that seals against the caliper) is at a slight angle, maybe 5 degrees.
The seals only work one way, don't recall which I'm afraid. Hopefully someone else will know off the top of their head.
Other than that, it's all pretty straightforward.
Best of luck,
Do not walk behind me, for I may not be leading.
Do not walk in front of me, for I may not follow.
Do not walk alongside me, for the path may be narrow.
Just piss off and leave me alone.
