I know, you'll see that I tryed iwconfig first beforehand.

I'm not too shy to use Network Manager. I looked into Network Manager,
but it's a bit beyond me. Would you excuse my request of hand-holding
and hint me in the right direction? Or, better yet, a tutorial. I've
not googled anything aimed at the naive first timer.

NetworkManager *usually* doesn't need to be configured - just start it. As root:

service NetworkManager start

If it works, and you want it to start automatically,

chkconfig NetworkManager on
