Are there any websites that give an abolute beginner a step-by-step tutorial in learning the rules of Go? Learning some basic strategy would be a bonus.

A secondary question would be: where are the best sites to play it online?

http://playgo.to/interactive/ is the standard online tutorial.

http://www.gokgs.com/ is the popular server for realtime play, and also has a very good tutorial.

http://www.dragongoserver.net/ is the popular turn-based server.

No worries. If you play on KGS, go to Rooms > Social > Boardgamegeek to play with the usual suspects. Or, if you want to play on DGS, send me a geekmail with your user ID and I'll set up a game.

If you enjoy exploring wikis for information, there is much for beginners (and higher levels) at http://senseis.xmp.net/ (Sensei's Library is a large popular go-related wiki) also.

The playgo tutorial seems to me to be quite good. The nice thing about it is that you can play most of the problems in the tutorial out for as full of a game as you'd like.
