Looking at the top of the car, front toe is like this / \ or \ /. Toe out is when the front tires are pointing outward, and toe in is when the tires are pointing inward, all relative to the front.

Looking at the front of the car camber is like this / \. Nobody ever uses positive camber, only negative, where the tires are pointing in toward the chassis. It's best to find a degree (I use 1.5) that gives you even tire wear over time. Stock cars usually use a little less camber as they have less body roll, mod typically runs a little more due to the extra speed, which creates more body roll, and causes the tires to roll further onto the edge.

Just run a search, there are a ton of threads covering all this stuff, especially the ones written by magic, which are pretty in depth.
