Good luck with that. I started out playing limit and I enjoy it but I think the variance is acutally larger in limit games. As an earlier poster said, many times due to pot size people are priced in to call down to the river and hit their suckout river card. Since your bet size is fixed you can't force them to make a bad call.
On the other hand you won't get stacked in a single hand so there is that.
One more thiing, if you are going to play limit do yourself a favour and read Ed Miller's book on Small Stakes Hold'em. He does a wonderful job of teaching limit and explaining a lot of really important poker concepts.
