Here's a few steps to get it working:

1) enable ip routing

2) configure F0/0 or 0/1 for 'no shut'

3) configure f0/0.1 (or other subinterface) for encapsulation dot1q 100 (or other vlan number you require)

3a) configure f0/0.1 with an ip address for the vlan

4) configure a vlan (if not already configured)

5) configure the 16ESW port (ie: f1/0) for access to the vlan the F0/0.1 is routing for.

(ie: switch access vlan 100)

6) hook up a pc to the 16ESW port F1/0 and give an ip address in the same subnet as the vlan. (default gateway will be the ip address of the F0/0.1 subinterface)

7) on the pc, ping the default gateway ip address.

Think of it as a 3+ port router. The first two are your physical ports, the rest are switched virtual interfaces (svi).

To create a svi just enter 'interface vlan X' where X is replaced with the vlan number. Vlan 1 should already be there. The 16 switchports can access the svi's when they are set to access that vlan.
