What's the best way to go about getting ITIL Certified?

What version of certification are we at?
What do you have to do to get which ITIL certification?
Are there any free learning materials out there?
How long should it take someone in the industry to get certified?
What else should I be asking?

Thanks

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

version 3.0 is the latest.
The first certification is Foundation.
Usually a three day course, ends in the Examination.
So three days, plus some reading in the evenings, will get you a Foundation.

books are available, but its best to complete a course, because you get access to practice exams.
