I need help installing the Ikea Lillagren wall cabinet to the wall

This is my piece (pdf warning). I have already put it together, but have no idea how to actually install it on the wall (and it is capable of being put on to a wall).

My googling skills are all worn out. Can anyone help me figure out how to do this?

Sorry, I mistyped--it's the "Lillangen" model.

The instructions are in that pdf -- can you explain where you get lost?

I guess I don't understand where the construction of the cabinet sends and the mounting on the wall begins.

Generally you would just screw through the back of the cabinet (from the inside) into the wall studs.

Hanging it on the wall is steps 10, 11, and 12 (pages 12 and 13). Page 14 is attaching 2 next to each other on the wall. AFTER that, you attach the front panel (steps 13-19).

note, if you don't have studs lining up, you'll have to get creative.

option 1 - toggle bolts
option 2 - ikea sells a rail that goes on the wall, and then the cabinets hang on the rail.

Oh, shoot--no wonder I misunderstood! Thank you, brainmouse!

(I can't believe I wasted a question on this!)
