How long to learn chinese. (Mandarin)?

Ok im looking to learn a new language, and would like to try to learn chinese. I am wondering what are some good resources or software/programs that would help me learn it. I have no prior knowledge of any chinese or any other asian language for that matter. I was also wondering how long would it take before i could actually hold a conversation with a native. Thanks.
