To Tread In Wild Places, 2nd Edition: An Introductory Guide to Wilderness Living SKills
The impossible knot isn't its technical name; it's actually a nickname for the double fisherman's knot. And it got this name not because it's impossible to tie — it's actually quite easy — but because it's nearly impossible to untie. The double fisherman is a knot used to tie two ends of a rope or cord together.
Make a secure loop with a Bowline Knot for support or a handle. Create a loop near the end of the rope, then pass the working end of the rope through it. Pull the working end around the straight line of the rope, then back through the loop going the other direction. Pull tightly to secure.
As dbice said they should be tight but not to the point where they're straining or distorting the tent shape. Another important thing to make sure that's right (which so many people seem to get wrong) is the angle of the pegs - 45 degrees every time.
