you basically wrap a piece of cooking foil around a plastic comb, right, and softly (VERY softly) whislte against it with the mic at one end of the foil touching it (but NOT touching the comb). then apply the following effects: polar resonance (30+), harmonic halftone (90%) and cuttle vibe 33MHz. That should give you a good start. To complete it stick the comb up your ass and sing 'I'm britney, biatch' as you shake your booty around

If it's the classic TR-808 sounds you are looking for, go to here:
This is a link to every conceivable TR-808 sound, at almost every conceivable setting. It is the next best thing to having an actual TR-808 to play with. Go there, download the whole pack, and have fun!
Now if you are wanting to synth up your own 808 kick from scratch, the basic way to do it from a softsynth, is to use a sine wav, pitched down real low, have the pitch modulate down from when the key is struck, and set for a quick attack rate, mess around with the decay, and that gets you pretty close to the original TR-808. A quicker frequency modulation will get you something closer to the 909 kick.
