    Not very sure if you mean cis and trans (the website has that answer), or two possible conformation of the cis; but the 3D model is nice to watch and use, xD. (P.S. You can twist the 3D model by holding the left click of the mouse button. Be sure to have Java!)

    The relative positions of the methyl groups are what matter. Either the 1 and 4 carbons both agree, or one is R and one is S.

    I think you may be looking for "chair" and "boat". Can't represent these for you in Yahoo Answers, though. The boat conformation would almost certainly have the Me groups "underneath" to avoid banging into each other ~ stereochemical interference - I think!
