Glad to see you joined in the fun. Lots of help around here. Stick's informaion on routing in particular will likely save you some problems starting. I am attaching an article, 18 things that helped me accelerate my learning curve. It is about 10 pages long with lots of pictures. It comes from the 12-13 years I've been working at learning this hobby/addiction. Hopefully it will save you a few costly errors as well. At any rate, ask lots of questions and we'll pipe up with information.
