    Show the cat the box and keep him in a small enclosed area with the box until he uses it. Most cats do not really need to be trained more than this. Do put him in the box a couple of times. When he uses the box give him lots of praise. If he doesn't use it, put him back in the box and keep him locked up until he uses it. It shouldn't take long.

    Simba's advice is good. Also try putting a little bit of soil from the garden on top of the litter to start with. He's used to digging in the earth outside so this will help him realise what the box is for.
