Depending on how much of a hurry you are in, you might seriously consider moving into another rental situation until you can build a few credit lines and learn a bit more about the lending environment and process.
Regardless, you should check out this page: http://ficoforums.myfico.com/t5/Understanding-FICO
SPECIFICALLY, I'd start with credit scoring 101, the very first link... It should answer a lot of the questions we all had at one point or another.
Above all else, keep looking around, there is a _ton_ of info in these threads... And, as always, let us know if we can help
