If you want to wait for an '03 hatchling, they're generally available around September/October. I'd reccommend Napa Valley Snakes, I got my pair from them last year, and they're doing great. They offer unrelated pairs if you're interested in breeding. If you want to get a young ('02 or '01) black milk now, I've seen a few ads in the classifieds recently, Amazon Reptile Center has a few '01s and there are a couple breeders with '02s still in stock, including Napa Valley.
As far as care tips go... you don't really need much but hiding places, a water bowl, and a VERY tight cover! :) These guys don't need any special heat or lighting, and will probably never refuse to feed or come down with respiratory infections as many reptiles are prone to.
Here's a picture of one of my babies... the iridescence of their black scales is very impressive in natural light.
