Python can program a lot of things. It's very good at controlling Windows,
it works on a lot of other platforms, and it's a good language for the Web.
But that shouldn't matter to a beginner. Python has a very straight forward
design, and a consistent structure, so it's good to learn to program with.

There are several tutorials for beginner programmers on the web, see
http://www.python.org/doc/Intros.html (especially the What is Python? link
and all the links after 'Introductions to Python for non-programmers').

Try to work through those tutorials. If you have problems, just ask on the
newsgroup, or mail me personally, or subscribe to the python-tutors mailing
list, a list especially for people learning Python as their first language -
see http://www.python.org/mailman/listinfo/tutor .
