need to adjust intonation on 540r - help

been playing my new, old guitar and I realized the intonation is off. I'm not sure if it a result of my readjusting the trem or just because of the age of the guitar, but its off.

I've never done this before, how much of a pain is it? I've heard varying degree's. I'd like to do it but don't know what its going to take.

You need to loosen the string enough to reach the hex bolt, than need to shorten the saddle if its flat and lengthen it if it is sharp? Only go one string at a time, retune each time?


Thanks for any information in advance.
