well this site is pretty good for learn somethings. The column to the left of the forums has some good lessons.
And for your guitar, are left handed playing right handed, or left handed playing a right hand guitar re-strung for a left hander?

Oh and on not knowing chords, if you look up chords for a song, there will normally be a chord diagram which shows you the chord shapes, which you should be able to learn all your major and minor chords from, but it will take a bit of looking.

Hello petey, and welcome to UG!

This is not the right place to ask your question, but you're new here, so let me help you out...

This forum (New Members forum) is for new members to introduce themselves and for general questions about the site. You can introduce yourself in the thread at the top of the forum: Introduction

After that, you should make sure you read the rules of the forums: The Rules

Now, about your question: you should ask it again in the appropriate forum. If you browse the list of forums, you will see a forum called "Guitar & Bass Basics", which is perfect for asking your question: Guitar & Bass Basics

... but let me help you out a bit if you want! I am writing a Guide to learning guitar, starting from the very basics and going to the most advanced concepts. I'm halfway done writing it, so you can already read all the chapters that cover the basics, perfect for a beginner like you! Check out the first chapter here:
The Ultimate Guide to Guitar. Chapter I-1: Introduction - The Guitar

Again, welcome, and enjoy yourself here on UG!

Cheers!
