Having trouble getting solo mining setup : BitcoinMining

New to bitcoin and want to do a little mining. Help would be appreciated.

Like I said, new to bitcoin. I already have GUIminer installed on my old laptop. So I have gotten that far, now I have questions as to what to do next.
I'm at school, so electricity isn't going to be a problem. Just thought I would clear that up.
OK like I said I am using an older laptop to mine, think XP old. I want to use one of its cores to mine. How can I set it up so that I can mine solo. And if I mine solo can I still earn BTC? Should I just join a guild like slushs pool or United Miner if I want to earn a little coin?
I don't have any BTC yet, so I thought mining would be a good place to start. I'm also building a more advanced desktop rig here soon. Can I transfer my mining stuff to the newer desktop after I build it?

New to mining, need some advice

Hey guys, I've been following Bitcoin for a while now and have finally decided to get into it. I have set up a Bitcoin wallet using Bitcoin-Qt, and am now interested in mining. I will be mining with an nVidia GTX780. I know that mining with a graphics card is no longer a viable option for profit (especially using an nVida card) and that most miners are using specialized dedicated hardware, however I am not concerned about this because:
  1. I am doing this to learn about mining, not to earn money.
  2. In my current setup I am not paying for electricity/internet/hardware/etc. Technically a single µBitcoin would be a profit for me, but again I am treating this more as a learning experiance.
  3. I do not wish to spend any money on hardware upgrades at this time.
Current Specs:
I have several questions on how to best utilize my setup. I want to be able to mine efficiently, yet at the same time I would like to use my computer for other things. To that end:
  1. Is it possible to pause a mining operation in order to do something else, and then resume it at a later time without losing data?
  2. Would it be better to solo mine or pool mine? I am guessing that pool mining will be better in the long run, but would it hurt to solo mine for now?
  3. What is the best mining tool for me? I currently have GUIMiner, but I have seen a few other tools as well.
  4. OpenCL vs CUDA. what's the differance between the two?
Hopefully someone can assist me in this. Sorry if some of my questions are a bit n00bish, but I feel like I am drowning in a wealth of information and I don't know what is relevant or not to my needs.
