In general you connect it to an pipe that leads outside. Since how to
do that depends greatly on what you have in your home, where the dryer is
etc. it is not an easy question to answer in a newsgroup. If you have your
dryer in a space where there is already a pipe to connect it to, then a
visit to the DIY store and a quick talk to someone there should get you
fixed up. (Note: solid metal pipe is much more efficient and safer than the
flexible pipe). However if you don't already have a vent in your home, then
it suddenly becomes far more complex.
Sorry. Stupid question - I did a little more homework and now I just
need to figure out how to configure the vent to get outside with as
few bends as possible - think I'll try to go through the wall, rather
than the roof.

It's a bit scary that he even mentioned going through the roof though.
I hope the wall is not a poured cement wall as that might be tough on
the chisel. And apparently he has tryed to used the dryer with no
outside venting before the lint accumulated in the room (and his
lungs). My advice is to do lots of research before attemting any new
