Getting started with Alpha and Beta testing

I've decided to start testing the Alpha and Beta pre-releases. There are some applications that I use that do not seem to be very popular; so I thought it would be good to start doing this to test the applications I rely on and help with other general testing too.

In a few days I will have a PC that will be dedicated to the purpose. The PC will have nothing on it to start with and will be cleared of everything before starting a new Alpha or Beta. Before the PC gets here I need to know where to get the Alphas and Betas, How to install them, and what the bug reporting process is if different from regular released versions.

Are there established procedures the Alpha and Beta testers are expected to follow or do testers follow their own ideas as to what they should test and how they should test it?

Thanks in advance for your help with this.

Have a Great Day!
