I don't think the component editor is a very intuitive tool to do skin weighting. However you might come across situation were you have to use it.

tutorials, hmm have you done a google search? always a good idea you know...

if the model of your leg only has one subdivision of vertices at the knee, that's why you're not getting any deformation. add some more edge loops to any bending parts (elbows, wrists, knees, etc.) before you bind.
