Just pull up a command window (Start > Run, type cmd and press OK) and type:
makepnlbmp.exe /b "[Output Directory]\main.bmp"
at the prompt and press "Enter". Replace [Output Directory] with the folder you want your .bmp to be created in. Easy...

Jim, that was naughty! Funny, but naughty... :)
Someone might take you seriously...
To the OP:
Search the web for a photo of the panel you want (or something close).
Load it in Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro and use it as a backdrop for your own artwork.
If you have FS9, install the SDK from CD#1 and read the documents related to panel and gauge design.
If you have FSX Deluxe, install the SDK from DVD#1, then download and update to SDK SP1a. Read the documents related to panel and gauge design.
Check the forums at http://freeflightdesign.com for further information, tutorials, tips, and conversation. ;)
