Basically subnetting is the use of a subnet mask which cancels out all but the 'subnet' address.

Cisco do a reasonable explanation, or try this one
IP subnetting made easy | TechRepublic
In basis subnetting is the art of extending the available range of IP addresses available, without subnetting we would have run out of IP addresses in about 1995.
You decide what size of network you wish to run under an IP address (and what type) and split the address accordingly by using a subnet mask.
I found that the art to grasp subnetting is to first find out what the stepping is then work out everything from there. I think basically you just need to read and practice then one day you will "get it", much like riding a bike.
