Sourdough in bread machine (bake in oven)

How would go about making sourdough in a bread machine but baking in normal oven?  I've got a typical bread machine with set programs.  Can anyone outline general procedure as to how to do it?  I'm relatively new to baking.

You don't say why you want to make the bread in a machine but bake it in an oven.

I don't have a machine myself, but my mother does, and makes very successful sourdough breads with the starter I gave her. If you build your leaven first, retaining it to maintain the starter, and just add it to the other dough ingredients in the machine, you should be fine.

On my machine there is a bake only function. I use this fuction without the kneading blade in after I mix and knead the ingredients. Works a treat.
