yes just do that extrude the faces go to create option box make sure its on polys and quads then create ure text in the create section.
Hmm im sure a little bit of fiddling and u could have worked this out, as with most of the noob questions seems hardly anyone is willing to tr something out there selves. How can u ever be expected to be successful without working ure own things out
Not meaning to b rude but im sure others are with me.
there ill get off my soap box/ lol

I always use the Bevel Plus tool under the surfaces menu. It is the easiest way to make text in maya as well it offers you many beveling options.

You can choose what kind of ouput geometry that you want. You mus drag select the letters and bevel one at a time. Make sure you get the inner curves as you drag.
