I agree, RTFM is the first thing you should do, then get some good books, they are usually plentiful and dirt cheap(used intro to photography books in particular), they pretty much cover most common problems encountered with cameras and film development. Photography has been around for a long time, there is a plethora of information out there in books before the web was created.
Black and White Photography: A Basic Manual by Henry Horenstein
Lootens on Photographic Enlarging
The Art of Black and White Photography by Garrett
Introduction to Photography by Rosen & Devries
Way Beyond Monochrome by Lambrecht & Woodhouse (a bit more advanced)
All of these can be found used super cheap on sites such as amazon.
