I apologize for the raw n00bness, but I have been searching the help area, documentation, and forums for 45 minutes, and I've come up empty. What do you need to do to get access to the API objects? Based on the examples I've looked at, I included this script
element in the head of my page:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://serverapi.arcgisonline.com/jsapi/arcgis?v=2.3"></script>

But execution crashes on the first reference to the esri namespace. Clearly there is something this API beginner does not understand.
