Good luck! I was pretty nervous myself - I hadn't used a charcoal grill of any kind in about 10-15 years (and that was "self-light" briquettes). After using gas exclusively so long, I had no idea what I was doing, but people here were VERY helpful. This board is very active, so ask questions even while you're cooking, and people will help you out. I got into a jam on my first cook and had at least 3 or 4 suggestions within 20 minutes, and everything turned out fine. Enjoy!
