Default residency match without step2

I am an Indian medical graduate. I will be graduating in march 2012. I actually had planned to give both my steps by july 2012 and apply for a match in sept '12. I dont see that happening. Can anyone tell me if I can apply for the residency match without giving step 2 ck? where can I find reliable information on this matter?
Is it true the if i dont get matched in the first attempt, my chances of match in the next attempt get decreased?
Also, I am going for a clinical elective for two months in jan-feb. How long will the LORs that I get there count?
