Not sure how beginner you want to go, but is the tutorial that comes
with the standard python documentation too advanced?

If so here are a few other beginner ones from my small collection of

Learning to Program:

Non-Programmer's Tutorial:

Instant Hacking:

There's also a whole whack of tutorals listed on

Good luck!
