Asymetrical Chute

Does anyone know how to rig an asymetrical chute. I have a J105 and don't know how to fly the chute. I know symetricals backward forward and on the not so occasional broach upside down. Can anyone explain to me how to rig one? the J105 has a "bow spirit" spin pole where the tack is attached. I know this line is used to raise and lower the tack but I don't know how to rig the sheets. I assume that you lower the tack for reaches and raise it the further back the wind is but I do not know the theory. Can someone explain it to me.
