You can then proceed to learn the names of the notes and to identify them on the piano keys. If you simply type "piano notes" into Google, you will see many articles that will give you the names of the notes. (A to G)
You should then learn to identify notes as they appear on manuscripts- you should learn the lines and spaces of the treble clef, and the lines and spaces of the bass clef.
Following this, you have a few options: you can go to U-tube and type in "piano basics and DVDs", you can read piano articles that will give you the basic beginner knowledge, or you can purchase a "teach yourself piano book".

I hope this helped you with the fundamentals. You may have just inspired a hub
