I am a huge fan of a C25K program, and like the one on coolrunning.com www.coolrunning.com/engine/2/2_3/181.shtml
I'm also glad you recommended Galloway's site. I've trained with him and he's terrific. The run/walk method works for a lot of beginners and us slow fat runners.
What worked for me, when I started my running journey nearly 10 years ago, was to gradually increase from walking to running. What helped make the final transition was signing up for my first official 5K - and finishing a couple of minutes behind someone older than I - !!!
