subnet mask


hi,
i been trying to read some of the tcp/ip guides , but i am unable to understand whats a subnet mask
i kinda understand what is a subnet but i dont feel comfortable with this subnet thing.
So any body could tell me a little bit about it.It would be more easy if u cud quote an example.
