Chemistry - Molecular orbital Config

I'm having trouble with this problem on my homework, We are supposed to write the molecular orbital config for a molecule. Could someone walk me through the process of how to do this and I'll see if I can get the hang of it? What I have to draw is a diatomic molecule. So the person who helps me can use any example he wants and I'll see if I can get the hang of it.

  1. We can't draw on this board; however, here is a description of O2 drawn to M.O. theory.

  2. So when asked to draw the molecular orbital configuration, you draw the orbital configurations for each element in the compound while doing something with the pi and sigma bonds?
