I have tried to look for many resources, but could not find anything understandable on the steps after initiating the Selenium server.
Here is what i have done till now.
1. Downloaded the Selenium RC zip & extracted the contents.
2. ran the selenium server executable jar file through java -jar selenium-server.jar command.
3. It initiates the Selenium server
with the following output...

You missed the thing which i wanted to know exactly, I followed this link and was interested in knowing the steps after initiating the Selenium server - How to write the Python code? (the 6th step that needs more elaboration)
And if you could also let me know on how to add Java or Python "to our path"..
eclipse is a java IDE (Integrated Development Environment) so by installing it you get the java SDK (System Development Kit) in your path.
I would also recommend linux for python development, it usually has python pre-installed. I used gedit with the 'better python console' http://live.gnome.org/Gedit/Plugins/BetterPythonConsole , and had a lot of fun learning in this environment as it was simple and easy (when I tried python in windows I was ready to pull my hair out). When you get a few scripts with python, try setting up the eclipse pydev plugin and see if you can get those same scripts to run inside the IDE.
For practise: I'd also recommend you make a quick "hello world" script in python and try running it directly from the command line.
Edit: I am thinking you might want to start directing your questions to a developer forum until you start getting those scripts running, as this post is off topic.
