Double click the Final Fantasy XIV Icon on your desctop.
Insert your account name.
Insert you account passowrd.
Insert your token code (if applicable).
Press start.
Press Yes.
Press New character.

You should then be given an option of which server to create a character in!

There are no (official, anyway) private servers. You chose your server during the character creation process. It also tells you (on a three chocobo scale I beleive) how populated the server is.

Yes its free to play but it was designed to be a pay per month model. When you create your character/account you choose a server and this will be your characters server for life (or until they let you switch servers probably not for 5+ years down the line or maybe never).

You can make multiple characters for different servers if you want as its free.

I can only comment on Rabanastre, I like our server there is plenty of ppl on. More important then server pop is linkshell quality. You really wanna find a linkshell that is active otherwise the game can feel like a very solitary game. I encourage new ppl to shout for a social linkshell and if you find you don't like the one you get shout some more.

I think come this next patch all servers will see a nice boost in populations and with PS3 release this summer?/fall? the game should be rolling smoothly.

If I remember right, after you create your square enix account name you can register your registration code through that account. This will give you access to the game once you finish creating a character. You'll find the registration code printed on the back of the instruction manual included in the plastic box with the game disc.

Hmm after reading this thread I have the feeling the OP might think the game is like other free to play games where you just download the client and play, so I just wanted to clarify in case there is any confusion.

The game currently has no monthly fee, however you do need to purchase a copy of it. The registration key is on the game manual like a previous poster said.
