That's fine, about half of the people on the tutor list are beginners of 
one kind or another. I'd guess maybe 15% at any one time are complete 
beginners like yourself. So join the crowd.

But we don't do that. This is a list where everyone learns from everyone 
else. Sometimes it's best to get an answer from an expert.
Sometimes a fellow beginner can understand what you need better.
Sometimes another beginner has the same issue as you but didn't ask...
And sometimes it's better to get 5 answers to the same question, each 
presenting a different slant, than a single answer you only half understand.

Basic questions are what we are here for. In fact if you ask a
very advanced question we will most likely tell you to go elsewhere!

This list is for people like you.
Jump in and join the fun.

Just be sure to tell us:

1) Your Python version and OS version
2) Your tutorial/book if you are following one
3) And always post full error messages. They may not look like
    much to you (yet) but they mean a lot to us! :-)
4) Be as specific as possible about what you need to know.
    One of the key features of programming is attention to detail.

It will also help if you can post in plain text rather than HTML.
And don't top-post (insert your comments after the text you are replying 
to, as I did above). Some folks here get a bit tetchy
about such things ;-)
