Well, you should have Three (3) longer poles and Two (2) shorter. Two (2) of the longer poles will be the basic construction poles. They will basically make an "X" across the top of the tent making the four courners of the tent. The other longer pole with also go across the top of the tent and right through the "X" made by the other two (2). This will push out the sides and make is "dome-like".
The two (2) shorter poles will go on either side of the enterance. These will hold up the sides of the tent to give you more volume space on the inside. Not exactly nessasary but if you want more than one or two people to fit inside, you'll need these.
Hope I helped.

if you get four sturdy poles (not normal tent poles) then the best thing to do is to stake the four poles into the ground at a 60 degree angle with the top away from the tent and then use the tension created by the angle to support the tarp.

Go to Home depot and buy a tube that fit the pole. Cut it into 5 or 6 inches for the broken areas. It costs me less than 2 dollars. Let me know how it turn out on yours.

the 2 longest of the poles go in an x over the center of the tent and the 2 shorter ones go arch to the sides. http://www.wenzelco.com/details.aspx?NavID=412
shows a picture very similar to your tent. If you go to image 2 it shows it with out the fly. now if you got 2 sets of 4 poles, 2 long and 2 short, and one set is all aluminum, then I would go with the aluminum set. It is less likely to collapse in high winds.
