Im in the process of setting up a 2950 switch for the first time.  I went in and set the IP address for the VLAN1 w/ the subnet now I am confused as to what I have to do next.  I would like to use port 1 as the uplink port.

The switch will work out of the box.  No configuration is necessary to operate the switch.  If you want to uplink the switch, simply use a cross over cable between switches.  Basic configuration should be applied to the switch for security purposes, i.e. set the enable secret password and setup the VTY lines for telnet access if desired:

switch>en
switch#conf term
switch(config)#enable secret <password>
switch(config)#line vty 0 15
switch(config-line)#password <password>
switch(config-line)#login

By default all of the ports will be on VLAN 1; if you're not using multple VLANs, you don't need to change this.  If your network does use multiple VLANs, you'll want to configure the uplink as a trunk port, and likewise the port that it connects to on another switch.

Use a crossover; on (non-Cisco) switches that have a dedicated uplink port, it's wired as a crossover so that a straight cable can be used.
