I don't know much about the stock market. On an IPO what price do the stocks start at per share?

Normally investment bankers set this price. For Google's IPO, the irrational exuberence of people that want in on the IPO will set the price :-)

So how do you get in on the action? Seems like it'll either be way overpriced cause everyone wants in from the start, or nobody will buy in cause they can't figure out how to do it.

among the list of brokers handling the ipo there are several well known companies. I would guess that they will let their customers know how to bid.

Here's one very interesting analysis of the upcoming Google IPO from a buyer's perspective:

I totally agree with the conclusion in this article. Google's market share is now at its top, which means it will start decreasing in the near future - especially when MS is entering the market.
The share price will be very high, not only because of the media uproar to be expected, but also because anyone knows (or at least thinks to know) how Google works and wants to buy a part of "his" search engine.
