    CS3 Beginner help - Overlapping?


      I'm new to Illustrator and I'm sorry if this is a silly question but I've tried all sorts of things and I just can't work it out.  I'm wondering how you partly remove the overlap of an object on another object.  I'm thinking it has something to do with Pathfinder but for the life of me I can't make it do it correctly.  I've attached a file to show what I mean.  What I would to do it work out how to make the top group look like the bottom group (as in each object overlapping another in one area but under another object in another area).  I can do it by cheating, as shown in the bottom group, but I figure there must be a way to do it properly.


      Any help would be appreciated.  Oh, and I'm using Illustrator CS3.
