My suggestion would be to downlaod a character sheet/ generator such as Simpsons or others available on the net. These do the math for you, and allow you to get used to plugging the numbers where you need them (it's also a lot faster for a newbie.)

Then, take the core rulebook and deconstruct the archetypes into these premade sheets. It'll really help with understanding the mechanics of how and why things come together.

You might even consider the new software advertised on the boards, although I haven't tried that one yet myself...

Welcome to the boards!

My Roll Call thread has two detailed character creation examples, which should be helpful in learning the character creation system: Minotaur, a powerhouse, and the Martial Artist archetype
3e Builds, 2e Builds, Index of 2e Official Rules Answers & General Resources (includes character creation and fight examples)
