Yes - that was very clear, thank you!
I was not aware that 1 side acts on 1 die, the other side on one die, etc.
That raises one more question: Do you roll all your action dice, and then take them one at a time, or do you roll them individually (e.g. FP have 4, SF have 5. FP rolls 1, then SF, then FP, then SF and so on)? I assume the former (seems more standard that way) - but there are definitely strategic ramifications if it's the latter.
(P.S. I had a couple of my usual playing group over tonight and I showed them the site and the pics from gamefest.com... now they are really in a lather for the game!!! Of course it doesn't help that everytime I find some new bit of info out, I run off to tell my crew!)

Before you roll your Action dice the Shadow player decides how many of his/her dice are put in the Hunt box (no more than there are Companions in the Fellowship) to be used to Hunt for the Fellowship. Then all remaining Action dice are rolled simultaneously.
Once all the dice are rolled the FP player goes first and picks one of his/her dice to use. Then the Shadow, then the FP and so forth...
If the other player has more dice available than you you can opt to pass your turn. This is often used by the FP player since the Shadow almost always have more dice and allowing the opponent several actions in a row is normally not good, but sometimes it can't be prevented.
