Simple Web Form to database using Python

Specs: Windows XP
I'll first of all start off by saying that I have zero web-development experience. I do have experience in programming using (semi-frequently) and Python (almost daily). I support a manfacturing software that has the ability to load HTML pages from within. I need to develop a user form that will reside on a shared directory (not on a web server) that will allow users to request changes and store the requests in a database (mySQL maybe). I can write a program in Python to handle the database side. I don't however have any clue how to combine the two. I'm hoping some people can point me in the direction as to what I should be looking for in terms of using Python and HTML to develop a simple web form. (Since this really isn't that complicated, the simpler the solution the better.) Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!

Python isn't really aimed at Web development, although it can be done. You might find it simpler to use PHP (you can find a wealth of PHP web programming tutorials on the Web and in books) which was designed with the web in mind. It's not a difficult language to learn and it will give you another string to your bow. (Interfacing to mysql databases with PHP is very easy.)
