Thankfully there are tonnes of resources all over the web devoted to getting you, the beginner playing good tennis in no time.
I personally recommend that you start by learning the fundamentals of the forehand shot, the backhand shot and the serve.
Practice these until you can rally with a friend at low speed, keeping the ball in the court.
