Use debian-user, not debian-www for this question.

What you need to to is "apt-get install x-window-system". You also probably want
a desktop environment. For that do either "apt-get install gnome gdm" or
"apt-get install kde kdm". Use google to find out the differences between gnome
and kde.

Finally, even though you are new too linux, that is irrelevant to your question.
You are new to the OS that Debian distributes, GNU/Linux.
