Try looking in the Blender Wiki Manual. It is very useful. For this question, the Rendering, Texture, Light and possibly Materials sections would be useful.
Another good place to look would be: http://www.blender.org/cms/Tutorials.243.0.html

Also, to change the size of a texture, use the “SizeX”, “SizeY” and “SizeZ” settings in the “Map Input” tab (materials buttons).

I hope this helps.

Edit: I just remembered: http://download.blender.org/documentation/htmlI/. It has alot of information. It was for Blender versions <2.40, but it is still useful. Again, it is divided into sections.

THANKS VERY MUCH FOR THE FEED BACK I WILL TRY THAT AND SEE HOW I MAKE OUT
