i am terribly confused.

i get the beaded cast on, which it says is done in CC, and then after one more round, it says to use the MC.  what?

Usually CC means 'contrast colour' & MC means 'main Colour'

i know that, but i am really supposed to cast one with one yarn, do a row, and then switch to the other yarn?

It sounds as if that is what you are to do.  I am not sure which pattern you are referring to, so can't say for certain, but it is quite common to change colours in that way when knitting. Could you post the actual instructions ( at least, that bit of them) so we can see exactly what you are being asked to do?

I do believe that you only knit 2 rows in a Contrast Color, then switch to the main color. I'm pretty sure the reasoning behind that is that you only have to string beads on one yarn, instead of both.
