    Ride lots.
    “Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”

    hehe - there's an introduction forum here as well as a mtb forum. Internet also has several mtn bike forums. Do also check out your local bicycle clubs (I'm in a roadie, mtb and an advocacoy club here) and the roadie offers rides (I used to lead several of them) for beginners -- and our mtb club has started up a youth mtb session - as well as a session just for women getting into mtb, besides other sessions where you can hone your skills on a flat(ish) TT course as well as getting up and around a pretty gnarly up/downhill course with lots of different trails off it for beginner, intermediate and expert riders. Good luck!!!!
