So I built a door and jamb in "general model wall based" but I'm not sure what to do next. 

 First - how to get the door "mark" and the parameters you will need in the door schedule to work with drawing?

 Second - how does the program recognize what is the door?  Its just an extrusion, so how does it recognize the door?

 Third - this was my first door and it took half a day to make with the parameters and all so I don't wont to have to do it all over, so please tell me I havn't done all this work for nothing!

Instead of using the 'Generic Model Wall Based', you nee to use the door template.  This has loads of the the door parameters already set.  The door will schedule correctly and can be tagged as such.  The template that you have used will not be able to do this.

To get the door functionality you will have to recreate your door, but this should be quicker as the parameters are built in.  They can get quite complicated, but the tutorial in the revit help is very good and will help you to understand the relationship between the parameters and components.  Doing the tutorial before attempting to create door families will be time well spent.
