Growing Agave Attenuata from seed?

My Agave Attenuata recently flowered (4metres tall flower stem).
I was wondering if anyone knows how to propagate agave from seed.
I have amillion of them now...some still green, some brown etc.
Would luv to give propagation a go but don't know where to start[/img]

That's the foxtail agave? What an amazing looking plant!

Here's a little article about growing agaves that includes about germinating the seeds:

For those that haven't seen it, here's a picture:

Agave Attenuata - Growing from seed

Thank you rainbowgardener.
That is the first decent "how to" on the subject that I've seen.
How do you post pictures in these forums.
I have a beauty of the Agave Flower
