did you create a value list first? if not, create a value list, and then in your field control setup when you are defining it as a drop down, pop up etc, select the value list that you created for 'Display values from'. If you want to let the users modify the list, select the include "other" and "edit" options

File -> Define value list

Create a value list (i.e. Value list name: "Fruit" with custom values: apples, oranges, pears, peaches, bananas)

Then after creating it, you can specify the value list when you are setting the field to be a pulldown or popup etc under (Field/Control Setup).

As a side note, I would definately start with the tutorial files that you can download from the FM website to get the basics down.
