Read the beginner's guide provided. The members of FTR have created an amazing library of poker knowledge. Do what you can to soak it up. I would have to say that any response to your post would be generic, and say the same things that the Beginner's Guide will already tell you. The basic rules and hand rankings are there. As well as beginner strategies and other useful information.
When you have questions that require personal attention, then bring them to the forums. But don't miss out on all the amazing knowledge available on this site outside the forums.
