Try the Galway Yahoo Flute Chat for ideas. Also, take some lessons from a fine teacher.

The lips should be quite relaxed, not smiling, and the corners down in a professional frown, necessary to play in tune. Wet the lips as air moves over wet lips better. Try at first starting the sound with lips closed, saying "puh". Later, you can start the sound with the tongue as in "tee".

Use a fingering chart to get the correct fingerings. Blow air at your toes and hold the flute in your left hand like a waiter holding a tray of drinks.
Try the Rubank elementary books to start as they cost very little. Later, you can buy the Taffanel and Gaubert Complete Method, the Bible, and the M. Moyse De La Sonorite(for sound development). Good luck!!
