The MiniBooNE experiment at FermiLab is expanding the search for neutrino oscillations in the high mass, low angle parameter region. It will give a definitive answer to the LSND oscillation anomaly, and probe interesting astrophysics-motivated oscillation solutions. Given the now accepted positive Solar and Atmospheric oscillation results, a confirmed LSND signal would clearly point to new physics beyond the Standard Model. The MiniBooNE experiment has been taking quality neutrino data from the 8 GeV Booster for the past year. A progress report on the commissioning and first data will be given.
