Welcome to the addiction, Muzzle. Don't be overwhelmed. Grab a beer and a buddy and take it step by step.
Biggest thing is to follow the plan, keep things clean and don't get yer undies in a wad. You're here to have fun and start an awesome hobby.
There are tons of recipes for every level here. So pick your style and pick a recipe that is realllll basic. A kit would be a good start. Get your feet wet.

Boil, add hops at time increments
chill the stuff you just boiled (wort) down to @ 75 or so (don't want to shatter that big glass carboy.)
put it in a carboy, add yeast, and watch the magic!
It is really that simple.
Until you get addicted and then there are more steps and toys than you can shake a stick at.
Good choice, and good luck!
Keep us up on how its going.
