Best bike for a new female rider...t0adman

I'd like to get my girlfriend into cycling and she seems receptive. She's 5'11" with a 32 inch inseem. My plan is to take her into a bike shop and let her test ride a few bikes to get a true feel, then shop the classified section here for something more affordable. Any suggestions on the material, dimensions, or size I should check out first? Any input you can provide on the whole process would be appreciated.

I think the most important thing is to get a comfortable seat, that way she will enjoy riding comfortably. The wrong seat and she will never ride again.
