How can I do interval training on a treadmill?

Here's one way to do interval training on a treadmill: After a short warm-up, start off at a moderate walk for about 5-10 minutes, then kick it up into a moderate-to-fast jog for about 1-2 minutes, drop it back down to a walk for two minutes, then kick it back up to a jog again for one minute and then finish it with a walk for two minutes.
