How to calculate terminal value for a dividend discount model?

I really can't figure this out. I'm trying to learn the basics of how to do a DDM. M&I says to calculate your TV based on P/E and EPS in the final year and then discount that. But it's so vague. How would you be using P/E and EPS to calculate your terminal value? I mean, what do you do with them?

What? If you have Price/Earning and Earnings then you can multiply them....and have Price!

But how is that helping you find your terminal dividend value? Because price and dividends are different
