The digital field guides are a great reference for learning camera settings, and really handy to keep in your camera bag
http://froknowsphoto.com/ is a great site for getting off of auto on nikon cameras too, you have to pay for the video guides but they are good value.
Kudos for trying to branch out of Auto, you will find that your photography will be so much better.
As a starting point, I would learn what Aperture does and then stick on A mode. See the different effects by shooting wide open, in the middle, and almost closed. Changing the aperture in A mode allows a degree of control whilst letting the camera do the rest of the settings.
Similarly, S mode for shutter speed, practice with that, and let the camera do the rest.
Finally, manual mode where you can start pulling all this together and dialling them all in yourself.
Whilst I am happy in manual mode, I actually shoot in Aperture priority mode most of the time as I find it is only aperture I want to change most often with my type of shooting.
Let us see some results, if you have questions do feel free to ask and i'll do my best to help. It saddens me when people use DSLRs and keep it in automatic mode so I love seeing people branch out
