    1st JJ, welcome!
    2nd, find Shug's videos. They are a wealth of noobie know how.
    There's vast amounts of easy to digest need to know stuff there. That'll get you off to a good start.
    And have a great time here at HF!

    Go to your local hardware store and get the cheapest 1"+ poly strap that you can (NOT nylon). Maybe Harbor Freight in you area? Use that for tree straps, as it won't stretch.

    If this is the hammock you got:

    then what you have is similar to the M1965 USGI Jungle Hammock.

    This might help:

    I have't watched any of these, but from the thumbnails, there's a couple of videos here of similar hammocks:

    This pic from Sportsman's Guide shows the hammock hanging:
