The Ways of Wine ...

So, what do I need to know about wine ? I have a glass or two every now and then (usually red, usually chosen randomly), but I don't really know much about how wine should be stored or cared for.
How long can I keep a bottle around after it has been opened ? How should they be stored ? (And is it different for cork vs screw cap vs artificial cork ?) How would I determine if a wine should be kept (cellared ?), and for how long ? Feel free to answer all the other questions that I should be asking, too :-)
