You set your initial conditions at t = 0. If your doing something with temperature, what is the temperature along your x and y axis? But I imagine you already know that.
The last four lines set up your system of discretized odes. Try it. Torsten set it up very nice as far as I can tell.
As for Shampine, yes those examples may be "simpler" but for MOL and Matlab, I have not found a better introduction.
This stuff is not simple. I commend you on you perseverance.
