well, it's not any more difficult than making any other type of yeast bread, so if you can do that - you can make bagels. the only additional step is that you have to boil the shaped bagel in sweetened water before yo bake them. apparently that's what gives them that crunchy outside and chewy inside.

LLL:I used a recipe from a hebrew newspaper. I think that all the recipes are the same. the only thing is that you have to boil a big pot of water with a little sugar or honey. after the dough has risen, and then you shape the bagels, you have to boil them for no more than 90 seconds in the water. then bake.

the recipe that i used suggested that after the first rising and shaping the bagels, then transfter them to the fridge for overnight rising. that was the only recipe that i saw with this second rising.

The recipe that I use (from Peter Reinhart's The Bread Baker's Apprentice) uses a second rise.  You prepare the dough the first day and form the bagels.  Let them rise for a time, then test one in some (non-boiling) water.  If it floats, then they are ready to refrigerate.  Refrigerate overnight and then boil and bake the next day.
