Step 5: Look for games with open players at your FLGS. Failing that, there's always http://dnd.meetup.com/

Step 6: Repeat above except for step 4 until zen-like DnD knowledge is attained.

Welcome to the D&D world. I would offer you a spot in my group, but I'm in Michigan

#7: keep your sense of humor as close to your side as you would a sword because it will be an important weapon during the learning process.

#8- Put up with all the abuse you're going to get as a newb, and try not to do anything too embarrassing in the games you play.

FYI Topic spawner: FLGS= Friendly Local Games Store
FYI everyone else: Topic spawner is in New Jersey, not the English tax haven.

#9: Look around for online groups to play in who don't mind adding a player new to the system, if you can't find anyone in your area.

I was actually half considering starting a new online game for people who'd never played before but were interested; if I ever manage to do that you're welcome to join.

All the rules you will ever need: Be creative. Use your imagination and never stop! Be realistic and be descriptive. Everything else is lagistics.

People matter. What most don't understand, but do anyway, its not nessecerily the game that matters, but who you game with! The best games are with good friends. Also don't get bogged down by rules, you should use the rules and always remember rule 0: Do what you want.

If you have an argument wait until later. The Game should always go on.

To learn? Pick up a PHB and read, and figure it out!

You might also want to look into going to a gaming convention. Some of them will let you in free if you're an "observer." That way you can watch a game being played with no cash outlay or commitment, and see if it's something that might interest you. Gaming stores that host games would probably let you observe as well, esp. if they thought they were going to get some business out of it. Also, look into borrowing a Player's Handbook from your local library before buying it.

You might want to download the D&D 3.5 edition System Reference Document. Basically, it contains all the rules of the game and pretty much everything else, too. It is free to download, and entirely legal. It might help you if you wish to try it out before buying.

The SRD 3.5e can be found at: http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=d20/article/srd35
