Create a Project
The main purpose of a Gantt chart is to segment a large project into smaller modules and tasks so it can be organized better. It is mainly used to show how long each task should take.

In the View tab, make sure the Default View is set to Gant Chart, then hit OK.
Go to File then New
Go through the Tasks plan on the left hand side of the window, making sure that you run through the first two as a minimum:
- Define the project
- Define general working time
Once done start entering tasks. Practise with a few to start with, and see how the dates are affected when you link different tasks together.
Project takes a bit of practise to get used to, but is a very nice tool. Another very good scheduling tool is Prima Vera, it's biggest drawback though is that it creates multiple files which make sharing difficult.
Hope this helps a little.
