First learn to use the command line interface, then worry about conifiguring sendmail. And to tell you the truth, sendmail is a beast, your better off reading all the docs and possibly book that you can if your really going to use sendmail. Either that or switch to Postfix, which is a spinoff of sendmail but easier to configure and learn.
