how to cook?

I purchased these rice noodles but they do not have cooking instructions in english. Here is what the package says:

Banh Ph'o' Thu'o'ng Hang
Chantaboon Rice Stick

Royal Blossom

Ingredients - rice flour and water.

Thanh Phan Dinh Duong.

Any thoughts??

ETA: (sorry, I forgot about moderated status and then I couldn't edit the post because it hadn't posted and I went to bed before it did post) I did google the name of the noodles and came up with instructions to soak in warm water for an hour (here: that's the exact package I got). I just wanted to clarify that this was correct because I thought it sounded like an AWFULLY long time... turns out that it was, because the noodles were basically mush :(

generally, one cooks noodles in boiling (salted) water until they're done to his liking. are you looking for recipes or something or was that it?

That is never how I have seen to cook rice noodles before - however, this specific package doesn't have directions, and I have had packages with a variety of directions previously (from soaking in warm water for an hour to covering with boiling water and soaking for 10 minutes to soaking in cold water 'until softened'), so I was just wondering what method to use with these particular noodles!

Rice noodles cook a little differently than wheat noodles. Bring a pot of water to a boil, then remove it from the heat. Add the noodles, and let them sit uncovered, stirring occasionally. Depending on the size and shape of the noodles, the time it takes may vary, but it shouldn't be more than a few minutes. They should be tender and slightly transluscent when they're ready. You do NOT want al dente, if they're still tough in the center, soak them longer. Stop before they completely fall apart.

generally I just leave them in a bowl of room temp water. Rice vermicelli only nees to soak in room temp water for about a minute

Thanks! I googled for instructions (forgot the community was moderated and my post wouldn't show up in time for dinner) and it said to soak in warm water for an hour :-x They were very soggy.

Alright bring a pot of water to a boil, whilst soaking the noodles in cold water. Using a oriental-style basket strainer, add the desired amount of noodles to it, and submerge it in the boiling water. Move the basket strainer around for a few seconds, whilst dumping it in and out of the water. The cooking should take no more than 30 seconds.

Googled the Banh Ph'o' stuff and foudn this:

I make my own no sodium chicken or turkey broth. Take bones and excess fat meaty party like neck gizzard etc. Put in large pot with onions, garlic, celery, etc. Cook and cook. Strain and put in large covered bowl. When cold. Take out and remove fat from the top. Put into 1 cup containers. Now for what's good

Buy some Banh Ph'o' Thu'o'ng Hang Chantaboon rice stick Product of Thailand ingredients rice flour and water.
These look like noodles. Taste like noodles. I got them in the asian food section. Probably any rice noodle would work just check ingredients.

In large skillet, spray with pam, add onion and thinly sliced meat of your choice (i use my already cooked meat). Put in some Bragg's Amino's liquid. Add stir fry veggies, (I use about 1/4 of a lb pkg.) 1 cup of the above broth or chicken broth, sprinkle with Mrs. Dash Roasted Garlic also Mrs. Dash Tomato Basil, add about an ounce or 2 of noodles to top. Cover skillet. Cook on med heat 5 minutes. Stir, cover again and cook about 4 minutes. Stir and let cook till broth is absorbed.

The above was found at here (third post down)
