ALT+click in the Layers palette on the line that is between the two layers. They need to be adjacent.

Make sure the picture is ABOVE the text layer.

Also, you probably need to change the name of ‘layer one’ to something else than Background before you can do this..

The method they’re describing above is known as Grouping layers (in 7 and below) or Clipping Masks (in CS and above).

Here’s a way to do it with a Knockout … probably a little over-the-top for what you need but here it is:
