Newbi questions

I'm just getting into mountain biking and by "just" I mean I'm about to go buy a mountain bike (I've been riding a hybrid that's 6 years old).Any suggestions on a good beginner bike? I really want to race next season but I can't find the 2006 race schedule anywhere. Does anyone know where I can find a comprehensive list of races? What type of training should I do to get ready by next April? Thanks for being patient with my dumb questions, I appreciate any pointers you could pass on.

Where are you going to be racing? What type of racing (XC, Downhill,?) What class?

Right now we're as lost as you. More info please.
