Is there any good guides that explain how to get started with mining for total newbies?

Thanks

if your looking for just mining as in setting up a dedicated rig, this is what I used, https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Gw7YPYgMgNNU42skibULbJJUx_suP_CpjSEdSi8_z9U/preview?sle=true

As for bitcoins in general, I couldn't really say, being in the UK I just went and joined the only UK based pool that I could find which was btcmine.com and kind of felt my way around from there, my honest opinion is start small, don't expect anything major right away, there's always bigger players than you so just do it for a hobby

The CGMiner readme file is a good place to start.

Also these pages are good guides

You won't make any money mining if you are getting into it now.

Just buy bitcoins.

Or buy shares in ASICMiner (at bitfunder). They pay a dividend based on their mining profits.

Mining is not only about profit, but protecting the network.
