masive newb question but we all have to start somewhere

ok.... here it goes....

im really into this photography thing but as you may have read in another one of my posts... i want a new lens.... but the thing is... as im looking around for lens i read all these numbers... and to me i somewhat understand them... but i would like if someone could fully explain to me what all those numbers in a lens type means...

if someone could do that for me that would be great... or even direct me to a site where i could read about this stuff..
