front wheel bearing help

I have a 98 windstar that is making noise from the front right wheel. When I had it checked they told me that I needed to replace the bearing so I went out and bought one.

It is a fairly large bearing and was told it is a hub bearing. I am used to the typical small bearing and race that can be replaced on the inner side of the wheel.

Is this the same thing? Do I just pull the wheel and rotor and is there bearing visible there? Does it have to be pressed in and out?

Is there an illustration that I can view somewhere on how to do it?

Any help appreciated
