Get a book about Python and work through it. Also check out on-line courses like this one: http://www.codecademy.com/tracks/python. When it comes to learning how to programme, the important thing is to get lots of practice.
raspberrywebserver.com - Raspberry Pi tutorials
LinuxWebServers.net - Linux Web Server tutorials and examples

Go to a good book store and check few - which you will find easier to understand. A non programmer will have to start writing some code quite quickly as the book goes into examples.

Go to a library and find all the books on Python and see which one is the easiest to read. After you've mastered that - you can move on to the more advanced books.

Good luck.

I would recommend Zed Shaw's Learn Python the Hard Way it is free on the web.
