As in, you've never written a *program* (as opposed to a *web page*)
before? Okay, that's a lot more fundamental than I was thinking of.
There are many web sites that teach you to program, some using Ruby,
such as http://pine.fm/LearnToProgram/.
Or do you mean you've programmed, but all you know about how web pages
work, is HTML? There are many web pages that teach you how a web
server serves up a web page. Googling "how web requests work" (sans
quotes) should get you some good results.
After either of those paths, you can try some of the web pages that
teach you Rails, such as Michael Hartl's "Ruby on Rails Tutorial:
Learn Rails by Example", or "Rails for Zombies". If you didn't learn
Ruby "above", then some of these will teach you enough Ruby to get by,
but you'd probably be better off learning Ruby before this point.
Also see the Rails Guides that others have mentioned, though it can be
pretty heavy reading for someone new to either programming or web
Along the way you'll probably have some specific questions. You can
ask Rails questions here; more generic Ruby questions should go in the
Ruby mailing list, which you can find at ruby-lang.org. However, it
can be hard sometimes to tell which is which, so don't worry about it
