The advice MH gives is the way all of the old (I'm talking turn of the last century) pattern books that I own approach the starting chain. They usually say something like "make a chain of (so many) inches plus a few chains." Then they give you the instructions for the first row and tell you to cut off the excess.

You do have to do a little picking to get rid of the extra stitches, but it's pretty easy.
