Well, I learned just by messing around with every option, attribute, and pulldown I could find, but here is a link with a few tutorials on it

http://www.learning-maya.com/60-0-cloth--fur-tutorials.html


But my concept behind fur, if I can get away without it, I don't use it. It jacks up the render time by a large ammount.

And also look into fur painting, I forget what menu it's on, but you can paint directly on the object in black and white and it will draw in the fur map on the model.

Also just look through maya help for fur stuff - F1

Just as a word of encouragement, I just want to say that the above advice is sound advice. It can be frustrating to start out with dynamics and not really know where to start or how things work, but everyone learns by the time consuming process of playing wtih every attribute alongside reading the Maya help files to see what each attribute does.

Good luck!
