The conduit problem requires that you pay close attention to the instructions and visualize the solution before you attempt to accomplish it. If the diagram doesn't help you, then I suggest coming up with an actual doughnut-shaped object, such as a rubber ring dog toy and mark on it. Put a dot where the twelve junctions are -- six on one side of the ring, and six on the other. Each junction on one side is directly opposite a junction on the other side. Each pair of opposite junctions has to be connected, either with a line on the outside surface of the ring, or with a line on the inside surface. As you go around the ring, pairs of opposing junctions are connected by alternating outside and inside lines.

Have I lost you? If so, go back and read more slowly. At any rate, from this point you can finish the circuit connections by drawing in lines that connect adjacent (rather than opposing) junctions. Play with it a bit, and you'll get it.

Note: If you are posting a hint request for Adventure Games Live, be sure to specify which game you are talking about and list your inventory so other players know where you are in the game.
