If your talking about what I think you are, you just....

1) Mark where the highest and lowest values are on the graph ( excluding outliers which you should ignore and then highlight at the end)

2) Mark on your Q1, Q2 and Q3

3) Connect your largest and smallest values to the box you get from your quartiles and heypresto...

eg) Like the one below (kinda)

Leeky, you gotta use them code tags!
Code:

                ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
-|---------|---------|---------|---------|-----
              this is the scale....



  ^            ^            ^    ^     ^highest value
lowest      lower      median  upper
value    quartile              quartile
             (Q1)        (Q2)  (Q3)
That help?

Btw they can be called box and whisker diagrams or box plots, both the same thing.
