Add the table or layer you want to join with to your table of contests. Then right click your source layer, select Properties, then in the Properties window go to the Joins tab. Click the + button, select the layer you want to join to, and pick the join fields.

This is only available in QGIS 1.7 or greater.

Edit: I forgot to mention, if the table you're joining to is non-spatial you still use the "Add Vector Layer" button. Just change the filter on the file menu to "All files".
