Python noob - running programs in the background / recieving signals form the OS

i appologise if this question is overly simple... i red some of the other posts on this forum and got a headache!

i want to write a program that runs in the background in a dormant state.
and whenever an incomming connection is detected (probably using the socket module) the program will activate and do stuff.... to make things more 'interesting' this program has to be *nix/win portable

i dont have a clue where to start as i have NO programing experience at this level. but, at the same time id prefer it if people gave me pointers and not pasted dumps of code as i still want to learn stuff.
