Can someone either point me to a site or post a little how-to on how to restore and then protect a sword blade that's become a little rusty?

I bought it years ago and and didn't have room to display it, so I packed it away under a bed. At the time, I had a pet ferret and he apparently got do it, and got some moisture on it. Over the years it's rusted and I'd love to restore it and display it, now that I have my own home.

The blade isn't polished, so taking steel wool to it wouldn't harm the overall appearance. But I'm not sure if there's a better method (probably) and I'd like to protect it from further damage later on down the road.

I've heard of a product called Renaissance Wax that's supposedly a sort or miracle product. Is that a good bet?

Thanks for any help.
