How do you steer?
Hang gliders are controlled by shifting the pilot's weight with respect to the glider.  Pilots are suspended from a hang strap controlled to the glider's frame (hence the name "hang" glider.)  By moving forward and backward and side to side at the end of this hang strap, the pilot alters the center of gravity of the glider.  This then causes the glider to pitch or roll in the direction of the pilot's motion and thus allows both speed control and turning. 
Is lots of wind necessary to launch/fly/land?
Hang gliders can be launched, flown and landed in winds from zero to 30 mph safely.  Generally, ideal winds for launching and landing are from 5 to 20 mph depending on the flying site.  Wind speed is less important in flight since the pilot controls the air speed of the glider whatever the wind speed may be. 
How will the glider gain altitude?

You and your tandem instructor will be towed to 1,000 feet by an ultarlight aircraft and then released.
