Greentings 3D artits!

I have modeled a steel chain and I would like to animate it. I'm a intermediate modeler but a animation begginer in 3DSMAX, so I tried to search tutorials that could lead me to understand how to creat a vertical bouncing chain, with no luck :(
I know I've to give gravity properties to the chain rings so that they can interact with each other, but I don't know how.
I would appreciate some help on this effect.
A step by step instrution would be extremely helpfull! :)
Thank you very much!

I think you'll find that reactor should do the job for you. Check out the reactor help under rope collections.
