4th Class Student - Startup Question - WaterTube Boiler & Steam Turbine

I'm in School for P.E ..Gotta fire up our WaterTube Boiler & Run a small turbine with the steam.
Here is a list of what I should do . What Am I missing?
Open / StartUp Procedure:
- Open Water Valves (Deaerator/R.O./Boiler), Turn Water Pump ON & AUTO, Check For Air Pressure, Open Fuel Valves, Check That Breakers Are Turned On, Turn Burner Switch 'ON', Turn Boiler onto 'AUTO', Let High/Low Purge occur, After I purge the boiler, I am forgetful as what to do. like let boiler warm up and fire up?. (How do I know when its good to fire up?), Let Pressure Build Up

What should the pressure be?, Open Low Pressure Header Steam Valves, Open Steam Trap Valves on Low P. Header, Set Steam Header Valve On Control Computer Screen To Below Pressure, Open Header Valve Above Boiler, Open Glycol Valves & Close Glycol Bypass, Turn Glycol Pump ON & 'AUTO', Set Glycol Valve To 'AUTO' & SP '15', Set Turbine Valve to 'AUTO' & SP '15', Close Drain Valves on Turbine, Crack Open Steam Valve Til Pressure is @ 50 PSI, Slowly Open Rest of Steam Valve, Start Turbine, Set up Overspeed Trip, Clear Any Alarms on Turbine Operator Screen, Ramp Turbine to 1000. " " 1500, " " 2500, Ramp To Rated, Press Breaker Close Button on-Screen, Turn Breaker Switch to Close, Then Back to normal, Turn Control Box on, Add load
Closing / ShutDown Procedure:Press Ramp to Slow button,Manually Trip Overspeed,Open drain valves on Turbine,Close steam valve on Turbine,Turn Burner Switch off,Turn Water Pump off,Close All Water Valves, Close All Fuel Valves.When do I close header valves & when do I turn Glycol pump off/ Close glycol valves

The WEbsite wont let me post it all as one.. sorry

You don't state the initial conditions. If its been on standby you may want to put controls on MAN until you can very drum. The FW controls may not work if its just been freshly filled. As for combustion put it in MAN on min fire. If the pressure is way off setpoint it will jump to max fire in Auto. Check breakers first
