Can someone please let me know where to go for help with a first-time installation of Ubuntu?

I have asked a pretty detailed question in this forum but unlike many other questions that zip on by here, it received no replies. If not here, where can I go for assistance? I am a brand newbie to Linux and need help, and am really frustrated at the moment.
