Open the manual that is probably in your glove compartment. Read it carefully. This sounds like mean spirited advice, but it's the truth. For more info: Oil FAQ

500 miles get that dirty stuff out. do not baby your car, after 100 miles start increasing engine loads significantly every 50 miles after 100-200 miles. Short bursts of full throttle with higher rpm's best way to break it in. Change oil at 1k your done have fun.
