Last rites?

Can anyone give me a sense of what, exactly, the Catholic last rites comprise? What rituals are performed, what prayers are normally said, that sort of thing. I can't get a clear picture from most sources, because none of them seem to agree. Some of them even conflate the last rites with Anointing of the Sick, which I don't think is correct.

ETA: Thanks for the links, guys. I feel stupid now for not checking the Catholic Encyclopedia; I have it bookmarked and everything.
