Ah, that's it.
When you create a new thread, at the bottom of the screen you'll find a check box to 'include a poll' or something.
You should, at this point, make sure that you know how many choices for the answer you want to make available. Fill the number of answers in in the field behind the poll checkbox (it defaults to four).
Check that checkbox, and when you hit the submit button, it'll take you to the next screen, where you can setup your poll question and possible answers.
Worked for me, and I'm a stoopit forrinner, so you should have no probs.
