Use can use DBCA executable for creating a New Database as a beginner.On Express Edition ?!?
I know it works because I can sign in on the web site. But it won't connect me or allow me to make a new connection.Not clear what you're doing. Are you trying to connect from SQL command line ? from OS prompt ? what else ?
And which exact error do you get ?
Something that will take me step by step on what I need to do.Sounds like what you are searching for is the [url http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E17781_01/admin.112/e18585/toc.htm]Getting Started Guide.
If you need some advanced knowlege, there would be the "2 Day DBA Guide", which, among other topics, contains a section on [url http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E17781_01/server.112/e18804/connecting.htm#CEGIFAHF]Connecting to the Database. I think you'll find all necessary information (background and step by step description) you need.
