I booked a flight through orbitz, and then they emailed me the schedule with confirmation numbers and flight numbers, etc. Do I just print that out and use that as my ticket? have never booked through Orbitz. Anything else I need to do?

The printed ticket with flight & confirmation #'s will suffice.
^^That's not a boarding pass, though. The schedule will not get you through security.
You will still need to either print out your boarding passes at home after checking-in online (you can generally check in for your flight 24 hours ahead of your departure time) or wait until you get to the airport and print your boarding passes from one of their machines.
I have used Orbitz many times with great success.
Print out the confirmation email that they sent you. Take the printed confirmation to the airline check in and they will issue you a boarding pass. Also while you are checking in with your confirmation, this will be the opportunity to check your baggage that you will not be carrying on.
Once you have your boarding pass, proceed to security, where you will have to empty your pockets and place all items on the conveyor to be x-rayed. You also will be x-rayed as a security measure. Anticipate taking off your shoes and including them in your items to be x-rayed.
Once all of this is done, regather your things and proceed to the boarding area. Listen for your boarding directions..... and it is all smooth from there.... that is unless you encounter turbulance....... smile and enjoy..... Orbitz is a good deal.... or at least it has been for me.
