    For Starters:

    if your iPad is visible in the sidebar on the left in itunes, you're good to go. just sync whatever you wish, or leave it on autopilor

     

    Look at getting started at:

    http://www.apple.com/support/ipad/

     

    ALSO download the manual from there

    Uh....do you have iTunes on your computer?  If you don't, you'll need to download (it's free) iTunes from Apple, then you can connect your iPad and it will walk you through the setup.  If you do have iTunes, for iPad2, you need the latest version, so make sure your current version is the latest.
