i can play good chess, just not serial chess. "knight to kings rook 4" makes little sense to me.

allow me to help you with that, horus

let's look at this picture that I was lucky enough to find so I on't have to make one myself:

http://www.mpia-hd.mpg.de/home/STUDENT/PICS/chessboard.gif

a = Queens (side) Rook
b = Queens (side) Knight
c = Queens (side) Biship
d = Queen
e = King
f = Kings (side) Biship
g = Kings (side) Knight
h = Kings (side) Rook

If I were to say 'pawn to kings biship 3,' all that really means is that I'm moving the pawn in front of the biship on the king's side forward by one space. Now, for your example,depending on the sitation, that would not be enough information.  You have to state the starting location first so that your opponent knows which knight you wish to move.  When you only have one of that piece left, however, the sarting location is no longer needed.

now, you can always label your board like that and get a computer-situation of movement: http://thegenius.sourceforge.net/images/chessboard.png
