The official Python tutorial is a good start. You get familiar with the 
Python documentation as well.
(Find the link to the tutorial on this page.)

A classic and famous tutorial is here:
If you have any questions about this, you're lucky to be on this list, 
because the author of this ressource is very active here. (One of or the 
founder of the list?)

Another classic is "Dive into Python". You can find it easily with 
google. There're two versions, Python 2.x and 3.x. By the way, I would 
recommend starting with Python 3.2. Some 3rd party libs and web 
frameworks are not ported yet, but for your chat app you should be very 
happy with Python 3.2.

Recently, a tutorial with a bit of a different style has been finished. 
I haven't done it and the style is not my cup of tea, but some people 
like it a lot. It's called "Learning Python the hard way". Google for 
the url...

Now, welcome to the beach of programming!
