Question applying a texture/material only to selected faces

Haven't had any luck finding this. Probably simple so apologies if this is easy.

How can I apply a material to just part of an object? Can I use multiple materials on the same object?

My example: building a guitar speaker cabinet, I'd like to make the mesh fabric one material, the frame another, etc.

"..or drag the selection icon onto the selection field."

I've been doing it the typing way - what's the 'selection icon' look like?

and where's the 'selection field'?

Selection Icon: red triangle to the right of the object in the Object manager

Selction Field: See "Selection" in the Attribute Manager when you select the object's texture tag
