If you have Python installed, then open the help file and browse to the Tutorial, that should be a decent start.

There's no point to reading all of it, just read what you need to start typing - that would be the tutorial. Then find something that you would want to write a script for and start writing it, checking with the docs when you need to.

If you've never done much coding the docs that come with python are going to be dificult to understand. You might be better off with a book like How to think like a computer scientist (found here http://www.ibiblio.org/obp/thinkCSpy/ )
or one of the python books from Prentice Hall or O'reilly. You'll also probably want to read up on regular expressions.
