My suggestion would definately be checking out the learning center. Then just fool around with a hub a bit. My biggest mistake at first was putting all my text into one capsule. It took me one hub to figure out that wasn't the wisest way to do things.
In all honesty, setting up a hub is really easy, although maybe for you it is a bit overwhelming. Don't worry, you can't break it. Write your hub in a word processing document and then just play with it, learning as you go.
