How do I get started in meditation?

I am trying to learn to meditate and I am looking for techniques that might be helpful. Is breathing essential or can I meditate without the inhale and vocal exhale? Is it better to sit cross legged or does it matter? What can I expect when I have mastered the art of meditation?
