How to do Macro with my gear

Ok, so I have a G3 with the 20mm/1.7, 14-45, and 100-300.

How do I go about getting the best Macro shots with this - meaning what lens, and what particular settings in the camera? I don't see the word "Macro" anywhere in the manual.

I notice that if I get closer than 6 or 7 inches with the 20, it protests and won't take the picture.

Thanks in advance.
