#1) wear pads like the others suggested including a helmet. you may get a few folks snickering but you've just got to ignore them. when I was learning to skate I took a spill while transitioning backwards and knocked my head really bad. got a wicked concussion out of it.
#2) if you've got friends who play hockey invite them out to skate with you and ask them to show you the basics. most hockey players love to spread the love of the game around.
