Go to this site so you can estabilish a basis.  There are plenty of videos on youtube for getting some useful tips, but I'd strongly recommend getting a private guitar teacher, or finding a local guitar place and enrolling in some lessons.  You also might want to decide which style of music you want to learn early on.

here are simple basic chords:
 G major:           E minor: e:-0
                e:-3                     B:-0
                B:-0                    G:-0
                G :-0                   D:-2
                D :-0                   A:-2
                A:-2                    E:-0
i know nothing about guitar...
do you understand the chords? by the way, learning guitar was very easy for me on the tabs i gave you, the e meant the high estring, the skinniest one, the B meant the B string, the second to lowest one, and so on.

Hit the library; they probably have an introductory book or ten.

Or find a friend who knows how and have them show you the basics.
