The main thing I would do is subscribe to the python-tutor list.  It is 
the best place by far to ask any questions when you are learning to use 
python: http://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/tutor

Second, here are some of the best tutorials specifically designed for 
people with little or no previous programming experience:

http://www.ibiblio.org/obp/pyBiblio/

And lastly, really a great way to learn is to look at what's already out 
there in python.  Try out some of the many 3rd party libraries and 
programs for python:
For games: http://pygame.org/
For GUI applications: http://www.wxpython.org/
and others: http://www.python.org/pypi
