The BASICStamp serries uses a programming language called PBASIC. It is supposed to be very similar to BASIC. I'm sure you can find information about servo control and syntax on the internet. Also, if you already have the PBASIC software, then start it, go to "Help" -> "PBASIC Reference". You should find all the commands you are capable of using with your version of the software.

There is a million and one books written on BASIC Stamps, that would be a good way to learn about BS2 servo control, and pretty much anything, and don't forget a universe of knowledge is on the web about this too.

The commands to start with would be the PULSEOUT command and a PAUSE command.

Over and over... :-P

That I'd most certainly have to agree with. Look around a bit (that's what I did).

You may also want to take a glance at the Boe-Bot Code. It does use the BS2 but coding should be very similar, if not identical. (The BOE-Bot's base uses 2 servos for locomotion).
