Learning how to stop

So I just picked up a pair of skates for the first time in years... my skating is alright, though kind of sloppy for now. While I'm sure that'll improve in time with a little more practice, my stopping, well... I can't stop. I can sort of drag a toe and slow down, but I can't imagine that being terribly good for anything.

I was wondering what advice you can give someone who's never been able to do a 'hockey stop' but would like to learn? I don't have the slightest idea of a technique I should be using or anything.

Thanks to anyone and everyone who replies. I'm sure there are others who can use some help.
