Sorry for the confusion here - if you select a task and bring up the Task Information inspector, you'll see two related fields - one named "Duration" and another named "Effort".

At any given time, one of those two fields will show a darkened "resource" graphic next to it. The value in the field with the icon next to it will stay fixed, while the other one will be recomputed based on the resources you apply.

Your task sounds like a fixed-duration one; you want the Duration field to have the icon next to it. It's like a training film: assigning more folks doesn't make it go faster.

Does that help?
