Does anyone know ANSYS?

I'm trying to perform what should be one of the most simple 2-D contact problems: hitting a steel washer with a punch until it deforms into a mold (a staking operation). I'm stumped.

If anyone knows ANSYS well enough to guide me through element selection, the necessary restraints, and how to define the loading for this thing i'd appreciate it.

If you think you have what it takes, speak up and I'll post a few sketches of what I'm going for. Until then, I'll just make funny faces at the screen.

Actually, I'm pretty good with 2-d static, thermal and structural cases ... I just have no idea how ansys behaves on large displacement contact models. And unfortunately, the only contact tutorials online are for 3-d parts already in contact with the wrond design parameter being specified.
