Configuring Cisco 2950 Switch for firt time

Hello,

I have just acquired 2 cisco 2950 switches which I would like to configure for my network. I am totally new to cisco but looking to learn. I have configured the switch and now I cannot seem to ping it, could somebody have a look at the config and tell me where I am going wrong? Do I need to configure each port?

When you issue "sh ip int br" command, does the interface Vlan 1 appears UP and UP?

ok I rebooted it, and it does eventually ping it just takes a few minutes, is this normal? I presume now I can just plug more devices in and it will work ok? Sorry to sound daft its my first attempt at cisco and I want to put these switches in asap. I dont need to setup any vlan's or anything so I presume im done? For reference:

Thats great, really appreciate the help. Currently doing my CCNA studying but havent had any hands on so this is new ground to me. Thought id bite the bullet and get rid of all the crappy netgear switches here in the office and replace with cisco 2950's... may be a bad idea for a newbie, but hey... you gotta learn somewhere!!! Will configure the next one and check and then assign points!
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.
