Help with Cantor's diagonalization method

Hello:
Can someone help me in solving the following Cantor's
diagonalization problem (I don't understand Cantor's very well):

Use Cantor's diagonalization method to prove that the following set is
not countable.
{x|x is an infinite length sequence of the binary digits 0 and 1}

Any input &/or brief explanation will be appreciated.

Val
