I'm trying to create a series of explosions in lightwave and I'm using the following tutorial to create explosions:

http://dsnake.de/tutorials/tutorial03/tut-expl-english.pdf

The only trouble I'm having is timing the explosions/emitters so they happen one after the other. Do I control each emitter's timing under Object Properties > Dynamics > Particle > Life Time(frame) > envelope? I set the value for zero for the first 10 frames but the emitter seems to start at frame 0 anyway.

Please help if you can!
Thank you!

You have to set the particle's emitting rate envelope to zero for the first ten frames, not the life time.
