Tab questions

I have a couple of questions about tab stops.
1: Is there a way to load edit-tab-stops from the .emacs file? Or must I M-x 
edit-tab-stops each session?
2: I'm not too clear on how tabs are working. If I edit-tab-stops from 8 
characters to 5 for the first tab stop and then use C-f it will traverse all 
5 spaces for the first tab stop -- however, it will jump all 8 spaces at the 
same time at the next (unedited) tab stop. Are edited tab stops akin to 
untabifying tabs (i.e. literal spaces)? I have the O'reilly GNU emacs book 
but his section isn't very helpful... thanks.

best wishess,
