What are the steps I need to take as far as learning different languages and technologies to get from HTML to .NET? Please be kind. Thanks!

Well HTML is totally different from the .Net platform and family of languages. What part of .Net would you want to learn? I'm guessing you want to learn ASP.Net - well okay. You would have to look at different tutorials and other peoples code to get an insight into the basic functions of ASP.Net, the .Net framework and how different it is from standard, classic ASP. Look around Microsoft's MSDN library as well as that is rather interesting.

Some years back, I went back to college and learned Visual Basic 6, then upgraded to .Net on my own after it came out. I bought books on C, C++, and C# to help learn them.
If you have never visited 4guysfromrolla.com (http://www.4guysfromrolla.com) or www.asp.net (http://www.asp.net) check them out. They are two of the better sites for information on asp.net
www.asp.net has links to free developmental tools that can be used to help learn how to write asp.net applications.
The best advice anyone can give you is to get some of the developmental tools, read the web or some programming books and then just start writing simple projects. Hello world is the standard first project for many.

Very good information. Like weazel, I would suggest taking a look at MSDN ASP.NET developer center (http://msdn.microsoft.com/asp.net/)
and don't be shy to take a look at the others as well, including C# (http://msdn.microsoft.com/vcsharp/). I'd have to go with miranda, the best way to get going is to read and practice(I guess you can practice programming :p ). The more you read and the more projects you do, the more comfortable you're going to get with with .NET framework, as well as the programming languges you're doing.
