LW's native UV mapping tools are really easy to use, all they require is a little logical thinking, and LOTS of editing
Just choose the most appropriate mapping projection for your model, unwrap, and then unweld and edit the points to remove stretching.
Then export to EPS and open in Photoshop and start painting!

I wrote an article about UV mapping in LW, it's on the NewTek site along with all their other tuts. You can read it here
