what is the proper usage of "provide some insight into? about ? on?

for example:

the discussion we had provided me with some insight

1) about the position duties
2) into the position duties?
3) on the position duties?

thank you.

I think I heard it say "insight into". The reason is that "insight" implies "penetration" in understanding or perception. In this case "into" fits in this sense.

Provide some insight into the possible location of whoznits

Provide some insight with regards to bla bla bla...

Provide some insight regarding so and so....

I am guessing here... I came to this site with the same question... Emotion: smile
I have the same question! I'm writing a paper and couldn't think of what the ( word + preposition ) is called so I googled "insight of?" instead. I'm pretty sure they are called prepositional idioms?
Anyway thanks everyone for the help!

And boy I was shocked to see "2003" at the top of this question. It really tells you how old the internet is. I was just starting school that year...
What an ancient relic!
