and i can then set difffernet baselines baselinle 2 3 4 and so on if i want to. so basline start finihs etc are not for entering dates but just to show correct?
Yes. They are for calculation of variance. Baseline Finish - Finish = Finish Variance.

Interim plans allow you to copy baseline data from one baseline to another. For example, you've planned your project, baselined and started tracking. Then you are told that a key resource that you had planned on having available is not available to you for a month. You wish to preserve the original baseline for comparison later -- so before you re-plan, you save the baseline by copying it into Baseline1. You then replan your project -- without the key resource and re-baseline. You replace the original baseline, so variance is now on the new baseline, but you still have the first baseline preserved in Baseline1.
