How should a minimal example of a CV look when written using the moderncv interface from the correspondence module?

I'm still a bit confused about modules and interfaces so some hints on how to check my environment including everything I need for this would be nice too (I'm using TeX Live 2010 on Gentoo Linux, no problems with rendering simple documents).

The moderncv package comes with a directory of examples that show how the code is supposed to look.

For example this template should compile and show you how things ought to work.

If you have an older version of the package, the \email command might not work (and you have to comment it out to get it to compile.)
