Congratulations! Some aspects might seem a little bit hard at the 
beginning, but I'm sure you'll find the effort worthwhile.

It would be convenient to know which operating system you're using, so

Also, is important to know if you already have a TeX distribution 
installed on your machine, like TeXLive, for example.
