null the Fret is where you place you fingers to make the cords?

Gshredder yes I know what the strings are. but what i am not sure about is why the strings and the cords both have letters.

the frets are the metal bars. You hold down the strings between those metal bars.

jessica--the strings have letters so you know what the notes are. The chords have letters to tell you exactly what the chords are.

I wouldnt worry about chord construction yet. Thas a bit down the line

I'm not very good at explaining things... but never give up on guitar, its an amazing instrument and once you get the basics down you learn something new everyday. :) welcome to the guitar world.

Jess,
I'm going to suggest (god forbid!) a second website to get you started. It's free and you will pick up a lot of very good beginner info there.
If you add what you can learn here AND there you will get off to a good start.
here it is http://www.justinguitar.com/

@ Admiral

Tech point! Justin's not British, he's Tasmanian. Not that I mind, I'd put anyone forward to be a Brit who can play a guitar as well as him!

He's probably been called worse, especially by anyone downwind of him after he's eaten a vindaloo!

Hmm, My advice is much like Ledzepprox. Don't give up and don't limit yourself.

Also, I would suggest playing all the strings open in between chords if you cannot switch very fast. ( I forgot what the chord is named where you play all the strings open.) As you progress you will be able to switch chords fast enough to where you wont play all the strngs open. Who knows you might be quick at doing chords right now. Just a little advice is all.

I 2nd the open chords suggestion. E, A minor and G are the easiest I believe.

gshredder2112 suggests you Learn B major and F major but I respectfully say that's ridiculous. Work on the easy ones first for a month before you start trying things that will guarantee you to flail.
