Unfortunately there is no "set it exactly like this" instructions- you will need to juggle the fast idle speed using the screw shown below and the "choke on duration" to get it where you can let the engine warm up w/o stalling and to be able to drive off w/o stalling while the choke is still partially closed.

Turning the choke cover sets the choke on duration as well as what step the fast idle cam/screw is used. The fast idle step that you use is going to depend on how far the choke cover has to be rotated to get the duration of choke on you need for the engine to warm up enough to drive. Juggling the two will get you where you have a long enough duration, w/sufficient rpm for the engine to remain running.
