Hell All,
       Could someone be so kind as to give me the step-by-step
commands on how to do Principal component analysis (PCA). I am pretty
new at stata, so be gentle with me!

Have you tried reading Stata's manuals?

Your question as it stands is a little general. If there are specific problems you have in performing or interpreting a PCA analysis, members of the list may be willing to help. At present, though, working through the examples in the manual would seem like the best start.
