This is the minimal set of steps, I think... (Linux, if you care)
1. cd to ....  jakarta-jmeter\bin
2. ./jmeter &       {execute it from the current directory}
3. right-click test plan add ThreadGroup
4. toggle open the test plan
5. right-click ThreadGroup add Timer -> constant timer
6. toggle ThreadGroup; select constant timer
7. Set the time delay between: the completion of one series,
  and the start of the next series.
8. right-click ThreadGroup add controler -> Web testing
9. Select (*) HTTP; and "/" for path (no quotes)
10. right-click ThreadGroup add Listner -> Graph Results
11. Select Graph results.
12. Menu -> Run -> Start

Should start outputting.

13. Menu -> Run -> Stop

All the rest are variations on the theme :-)
Especially you can add more URL hits ti the existing "web testing"
