Hello,

http://diveintopython.org/ - might be a good place to start.

There are also a bunch of free programming books (some related to python,
some not) to be found here:
http://www.e-booksdirectory.com/programming.php#python - How good these
books may or may not be is up to you to find out. Also, some uni's/collegs
have taken to posting videos of classes online, that you can watch for free.
An example would be: http://webcast.berkeley.edu/ - Go to courses, and then
'select semester' (upper right) and start looking through. Some years have
more programming classes than others. Not explicitly python, but programming
is programming is programming or something like that.

Should be enough to get you started :)
