A portlet is a small window that delivers unique content to the end user.

A portal page is a web page in which a number of portlets are assembled, all within the confines of a theme and skins that provide a consistent overall look.

A portal is an environment that allows portlets to run, pages to be aggregated together, and finally, content to be delivered to the client in the form of portal pages.

That's a pretty good start. Check out my signature links for some in depth tutorials on creating portlets and administering portal servers.
