No problem. I'll assume you haven't input your AppleID, and in that case haven't made an purchases.
I'll run you through setting up iTunes and the iPad, but please bear in mind I'm going to have to do a lot of it from memory, as I'm away from my PC.
When we are done, you will have your iPad set up to communicate with your computer, the iTunes Store and if you want, the iCloud.
Give me about 20 minutes while I go and grab a coffee, and if I've made any assumptions that are not right, just let me know. If anything is not clear, I can give you annotated screenshots.
