Better than nothing, right?

Is there a particularly good handbook/regimen for using weight machines
at a gym? Something preferably geared toward strengthening the back, improving posture, eliminating back pain (as opposed to e.g. weight loss.)

I've read Starting Strength, I've briefly worked out with barbells, I know about the relative benefits of free weights, etc. and I'm going to stick to machines anyway for a bunch of reasons. I can't imagine they're worse than not going to the gym at all.
I want to make the best of it. I worked out with weight machines regularly as a teenager, so I'm confident using a bunch of them. I just have no idea how to get started, and I'd like a good outline for proper form, which sort of machines target what and so on.
