Cheese Plate Etiquette

I am just starting to develop a love for all things cheese and sometimes order a cheese plate at more upscale restaurants. But I have no idea how to consume the goods!

- Fork or knife to divvy-up the cheese?
- Use your fingers to pick-up the hard cheese?
- What to do with the honey?
- How about the bread - I assume you don't make mini-cheese sandwiches?
- And what's the role of fruit compote that is often added to the plate?

Many thanks for any insight you can share.
