trying to get an 8x32 ws2812b RGB matrix programmed for a dj mask

I have just received my ws2812b 32x8 matrix from and when I hooked it up to my T-1000, the Error Light remained solid after many hours of internet searching and question/answer sessions. Now, i am choosing the Arduino approach. I have an Arduino Duemilanove and would like to know how to get the displays I keep seeing around. People have 8x8, 10x10, 16x32.....etc, but nobody has or wants to share how to get an 8x32 Matrix up and running. I saw a video of someone using Glediator to make a sequence and load it into a sketch, but there was no explanation given. I would like to have animations, plasma walls, color wipes, rainbow trailing....that sort of thing. I'm not getting any help, though. This is actually for my DJing costume, so I would like a timely answer(if anyone can give one). Feel free to email me at:
