PHP - newbie needing help

I need help learning PHP coding.  I have a lesson to do.  I have a simple html form designed to take street, city, state and zipcode.  Eventually, this information is to go into a database with the same fields plus and autoincrement ID.    I'll have to use a $_POST arrayand somehow get this information into a table in mySQL.

I'm not sure where to begin.  Would I create an array before the form?  I have one of O'Reilly's books here.  His example gathers information from a form with one text area, but I have several text areas (they must be text areas for this exercise).  There is an example for multiple answers from a check box in the book, but not for multiple values from text area boxes.

So I'm not certain where in my file to make this array, and I would appreciate a hint about what I need to do to send this to the database.
