A common mistake is to try and create a logo using a simple drawing program and make an image file. Creating an image will only look good at the size you created it. A vector image is all done with a mathamatical interface (no seriously, you don't need to do any more maths!) and will create lines, or paths, which can be resized from a business card size to a billboard and still look as fantastic as the day you designed it.
Vector Art Programs
There are many commercial programs which professional designers usually use, but there is a fantastic free open source program. Inkscape. Inkscape is available for all computer formats and is available here.
Vector Logo Video Tutorials
There are some great starting tutorials out in YouTube land, and these are a couple that I recommend. Forst there's Inkscape Basics which is a great starting point for the tools and features available in Inkscape, then move on to Inkscape for Beginners: Logo Design Tutorial which explains a logo design step by step.
