    That would require knowledge of Photoshop, HTML, CSS, maybe some JavaScript and a programming language such as PHP or ASP.NET.

    All I can say is visit www.amazon.com and buy some books :) There's no "kickstart" for this.

    if buying books is not an option for you for which ever reason, start reading and learning via the web. sites such as www.w3schools.com or www.asp101.com are a good starting point. google is your friend! :)

    Do you want to learn how to design? Or do you just want to create a great site?

    check out some html and css books from the library, kinda scan them though, do some of the exercises and you'll be fine in no time.

    go to a book store and browse through books on what you want to learn. then go to amazon or w/e and buy them. or you can take a class and have someone read the book to you... either way, online tutorials are best at enforcing points rather than learning a broad skill like web design. there are too many different parts. graphic design, web design, css, programming languages...
    books and such will only teach you how to do something in best practice or how to achieve a certain effect, but trying stuff on your own is what custom web design is all about.

    As an experienced professional web developer, I can tell you it takes a lot of time and practice. I'd strongly recommend using a resource site, http://www.allwebdesignresources.com/ is a good one. http://www.webmonkey.com is where I learned basic HTML many years ago. They also have lots of other resources for you to use as well.

    For specific tutorials with programs, I'd recommend http://www.pixel2life.com

    Whenever you make a new design, post it on some web design forums for other web designers like me to review and give you some constructive criticism and advice.

    Over time you will get better, and your creativity will open up more than it ever has.

    Just make sure you learn how to use css and divs because tables are history.

    learn css and layers, use transparency and soften edges of graphics by using subtle shadows and grad masks to get that flow. Making the graphics and the content flow seamlessly is an art and getting it right can make a site go from so so to so amazing awesome.

    A good website, i find, is original, doesn't look like a cookie-cutter template site, has a good use of colors, has a clean design, has that flow between text based content and graphic based content, and just has that extra amount of detail not found in quick, fly-by-night web sites.
