It should be a pretty simple

It should be a pretty simple task, just do "channel-group x mode on" on both sides, make sure physical and logical interfaces are "no shut"

The sample config per port

The sample config per port shud b like this:

interface fa0/1

switchport mode trunk

switchport trunk allowed vlan 10

channel-group 1 mode on

Once u do it on per port per switch it will automatically create port channel 1 (since channel-group is 1 here) on both the switches.
