I know this is probably the most simple question to be answered, but nowhere I've searched has any explanation for this.

Are you running linux or windows?  If you have windows you can join a pool from within your wallet. Launch litecoin-qt.exe
Use a pool like http://www.p2pool.org/
It tells you what to put in the address, port, username, and password. Then press start mining. You need to have minerd copied in the same folder as your qt.

If you are using linux you can make a script like this:

Code:
sudo nano script.sh
then copy this code, replace the http: with your pool, the username.1 with your username, the password with yours.
Code:
#!/bin/sh
export DISPLAY=:0
export GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT=100
export GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS=1
cd /home/rig/cgminer-3.1.1-x86_64-built
./cgminer --scrypt -I 20 -g 1 -w 256 --thread-concurrency 21712 --gpu-engine 1090 --gpu-memclock 1500 --gpu-vddc 1.087 --temp-target 80 --auto-fan -o http://www.digicoinpool.com:443 -u username.1 -p password

Then chmod it like this:
Code:
sudo chmod +x script.sh

then run and watch
Code:
./script.sh

The above works for Litecoin.  If you want Bitcoin I cover how to do so for Bitcoin in my book Bitcoin Mining Step by Step, see my signature for the link.  it's only $2.99.  It will also provide a lot more of the detail around mining.

The easiest way to test things out is to install guiminer (http://guiminer.org/) then make an account, and a worker on Slush's pool (https://mining.bitcoin.cz/), and enter your username.worker_name and password in guiminer, and start.  You should see x Mh/s in the miner, and eventually on (https://mining.bitcoin.cz/accounts/profile/) you should see roughly the same number of Mh/s.
