The documentation is pretty thorough:

http://fastercsv.rubyforge.org/

and the tests show usage:

http://fastercsv.rubyforge.org/svn/trunk/test/

If your needs are simple though, maybe this code is all you need:

   FCSV.foreach( path, :headers           => true,
                       :header_converters => :symbol ) do |row|
     YourARModelClass.create!(row.to_hash)
   end

Hopefully that at least gets you started.
