So how do I choose which blue for the header? Should it even be blue? What goes with blue?

Give me a crash course in colour! I need to start making some flat template designs for a website but don't know where to start.

I've come to web design through information architecture and writing web content. I'm a word-oriented person with essentially no visual interests; I don't own a single painting, have never been moved by an image in a gallery. All my walls are magnolia.
We've got a house style in terms of shapes for the site, and my manager has asked me to come up with a few different colour schemes to discuss. There have to be millions of colours available in #nnnnnn.
I know there's a thing called a colour wheel that shows colours that go well together. That's as much as I know about colour.
Are there any resources on the web for learning about this? Tips about how to pick colours? Is there a process by which you can come up with colours that are useful across a site?
Any help very much appreciated.
