How do I make a document that will be printed so that its pages can be folded in half and stapled down the middle? (saddle-stitched?)

I'm in charge of my campus fellowship's semester publication/magazine. In the past we've done everything "by hand," cutting with scissors and gluing, et cetera. But this year I am using InDesign.
I'm not having much trouble actually making the magazine, but I just realized how printing it might be a problem. Because on the computer the document is displayed in page order, but if it's printed like that and stapled (down the middle, saddle-stitch?), all the pages would be out of order.
So I must do something called imposition?
Also, we are printing at kinkos. Would it be best to go with a PDF file that is formatted with page spreads (?) for printing? How do I go about doing this?
Sorry I know nothing about printing so my lingo is probably all wrong. So any help would be appreciated!
