Laminate flooring - what to do with stairs

I'm considering laying some laminate flooring in my living room, hall, and landing at the bottom of the stairs. My questions is - what do I do with the stairs? Can you buy maple stuff to put on stairs? I assume you can't just use the laminate. Can someone show me a website of what can be done - or maybe a description.

I would carpet the stairs, it's much safer than a slippery wood floor. I doubt laminate would work at all, zillions of edges to deal with.

I took out my carpet as it was becoming unsafe as it wore. No big deal with laminate. It works well in spite of your doubt. True that some stairs may have a lot of edges, mine didn't.

www.wilsonart.com You can see the stair treads here http://www.mairmg.com/wilsonart/homeowner/uploads/FlooringSystem-Graphic.pdf
If you are buying the cheap stuff at the dollar store, you won't find the trim. The better brands have what you need. I have a split entry and used a marble looking block on the landing. Easiest is when the stairs are closed on both ends so all you have to do is the tread and riser.

Nice links. Thank you.
I am considering to replace my carpet stair with a quality laiminate stair for a while. My only concern is the laiminate nose length, usually 1/2" or less. I need to cut my current 1" nose to install the laminate. As my builder only satisfied the minimum county code requirement: 9" tread + 1" nose, I can't lose that half inche of nose length.
So is there any way that I can get a 1" laminate nose, or else a way to keep my tread depth at 10"?
BTW, that one step tread with nose from Wilsonart is really nice. I would like to install that I can solve the nose problem.
