Newbie PT limiting question

What should be the steps in setting up a limiter(what plug-ins are recomended) on the stereo bus in pro tools.....I keep getting overs and I want to keep the over all volume around 0.0db But I still want my mix to sound too compressed....

Uh... maybe you mean you don't want the mix to sound too compressed? Most people use the Waves L1 or L2. I'm sure there's others out there which are just as good or better. But, rather then using a limiter on the mix buss just turn the freakin' level down. Yeah. Trust me, it'll sound much much better. Especially if you or the mastering engineer add the limiting later.
