Handbrake adjustment

Hi All.

We have an 02 4.8 manual patrol, and to put it mildly, the handbrake doesn't work. Reef it on, and if there is a slope, the car will roll. At the moment, all that is holding the car is the fact we are leaving it in gear.
How hard is it to adjust the handbrake, and what should we look out for?
Should anything be replaced, or will a simple adjustment do?
Has anyone ever done this at home before?

I find a little adjustment is necessary from time to time. Just tell her to get out and put some bricks behind the wheels. To adjust, just threaten to grow a beard and get fat. She'll do anything for a few days after that.
If she does, and gets upset, just readjust ;)

Hope mine doesn't read this too...
