So I'm new to tabletop games, and I'd like to start a game of CoC. I have a group of people interested, but I was wondering how we would go about this. Are they any tips, rules, etc. I should know about running this, and CoC in general?

CoC is not D&D, or many of the other games you may have heard bandied about. Do not treat it as such.
Make sure you do right by the lore, it's 60% of the game.
Make sure the players understand they are not going to "win". CoC is a brutal game, at times, where the few victories are presaged by defeats in spades. The easily butthurt need not apply.

Indeed. Well-run CoC games should not include much in the way of serious combat; any character significantly better in combat than their *player* would be is already trending towards munchkin. (That's a good way of gauging it, really: could *you, the person sitting at the table rolling dice, do that?)

Also, go watch the Spoony Experiment video talking about Call of Cthulhu, combat, and characters: "If you stat it, they will kill it".

Try to be careful not to get player that are too jaded of CoC. In many cases for me and most of the party is was, "Hey, lets race to zero sanity!"
