Start with a secured credit card.  There are some shown on this site.  You do have to deposit a few hundred dollars with the card issuer and that becomes your credit limit.  Also, the interest rate tends to be rather high since you currently have no credit history, but that can improve over time (and it does take a bit of time).Use no more than 10% of your available credit at a time and pay the account in full when the bill comes in and not before then.  Your credit history will be off to a good start then.

If you haven't already, please read the articles on this site because they provide very good information on credit so you can learn more about it.  I found them very helpful
