Please have a look on basics first .Information for all basics can be found in general information forums .Look in particular for visualisation ,meditation ,grounding ,casting a circle .Also knowing the general associations ,moon phases and so on is good idea .
Circle casting is creating a balanced, sacred space to work magick in. It is called circle casting because it involves drawing a magical circle around you which will serve as the barrier of this space.
This page actually does a pretty good job explaining circle casting and how it is done in a Wiccan context; http://www.controverscial.com/Circle%20Casting%201.htm
If Wiccan castings aren't your thing you can also try a more Hermetic banishing like the LBRP; http://www.kheper.net/topics/Hermeticism/LBR.htm
