Read the official tutorial for Python and Frederik's Tkinter
tutor (for cross platform portability Tkinters probably the
easiest way to go for now, GTk and Glade notwithstanding)
There are several good Python books for existing programmers
'Programming Python'(now a wee bit old),
Quick Python and
Learning Python all get good marks.
'Internet Programming with Python' may be relevant since
it includes stuff on using sockets etc but its hard to find.
There is only 1 that I know of for Tkinter - Manning Press,
written by John Grayson. Its probably worth buying.
Frederick is apparently publishing his tutor but I don't
The O'Reilly 'Python for win32' may be a must have given
your target environment.

Check out the mailing lists too - the tutor list would be
a good starter but you will outgrow it pretty fast I suspect....
Also try some of the SIGs, they might be relevant.
Finally consider a web based approach to what you want, that
might be simpler albeit more retricted in the long term...
It all looks mightily ambitious to me.
