So what is the problem, the fact that you don't know where/how to begin, or that you want someone to do it for you?

First create a table in the database with 4 fields. Something along the lines of ID, username, password, email.
Then create a new row every time someone creates a new account.

I suggest you start with a groupware script (dotproject etc, search on google) that use PHP to manage a group (just as you wish. Then look at some parts of the code and you'll learn faster. Then when you get fluent, you can start your own. It will be hard at first, but you'll got something instantly, and you'll learn the structure.

For your own problem, here's my ideas of how to start.
- Draw a database structure with mysql. See which field will you need. Let's say userid (it's easier to control with userid), username, userpassword, useremail, userright, etc. Then put them in a user table. Then see what else you may need (noteid, note_content, note_owner, etc), put them in another table (for eg, note). So you'll have a database (put a name for it).
- Draw a connection structure: how will you connect between database and php, which function will be use. Write some function to update/edit userinformation and note content.
- Draw a structure to get user information: which HTML form will be used, which variable will be parsed from HTML to PHP, which function will process those data.
- Draw a structure to display note, blah blah blah

Hope that you got the ideas. Unless you have something on hand, don't start with the html form.

As NetExpert said, you have to plan the application first.
Then, when you start coding, you have to never forget taking security into account.
Basically, after you add a user to the DB, all the functions will have to either receive the user_id, or take the user_id from the Cookie or Session, and take it into consideration in any of the actions or DB Queryies they do.
