Um... I know C++ and allegro but I know nothing at all on networking, absolutely NOTHING at all, I don't know how it works. I would like to make a small multiplayer game, so where should I start? What are the things I need to know and where can I learn about them? Do I need to be very skilled and have massive ammounts of free time? Or is it easy to learn and simple?

If you know nothing at all of networking, it might take a while. If you know nothing of programming networking, it's simple though perhaps not simple to learn. Google for Beej's Guide to Network Programming. Free online guide which provides a good portable into to programming networking. You also might be inclined to pickup a library which will almost invariably be easier to use. RakNet seems to be one of the most popular around here.
