I hit the rewind button on the bottom of my camera early. (first time using the camera, I didn't realize it rewinds on it's own AFTER the last frame) Now my camera is beeping at me and not letting me take the last picture. How can I save my film?

Lift up the rewind crank. Press the film rewind button on the bottom of the camera and turn the crank clockwise. Rewind until the tension on the crank lessens, indicating that the film leader has been released from the take-up spool. Pull up on the film rewind crank and the back will open.
Usually the automatic rewind starts when the film roll has come to the end. You can rewind also before that by a rewinding button you'll find usually somewhere in the camera body.
To rewind manually, press the film release button (consult the manual if you don't find it) and use the rewinding lever to rewind the film. See this for inspiration: http://www.ehow.com/how_2028878_film-mm-manual-slr-camera.html
I think you have already ruined the film except the frames that are rewind back to the film cartridge. You can take the film out from the camera, push in the rewind button at the bottom, pull out the film from the film take up reel. On the film cartridge, turn on the long tube in the middle clockwise to wind all the film back into the cartridge. If you had the back opened briefly, do manual film rewinding in the dark room.
push in the rewind button on the bottom of the camera. turn the rewind knob to the right until all the film is rewound into the film canister.
pull up on the rewind knob to open the back ( film ) door, remove canister. put new film into camera push rewind knob down and pull enough film to attach to the take up spool.
On the N80 - there are custom functions you can set in terms of when a film rewinds. Normally it is default to rewinding automatically at the end of a film. If this setting has been changed, or you want to rewind a film before the end - you need to press two buttons and hold them, at the same time.
The first button is the LCD backlight button next to the LCD, and the second is the flash sync button on the rear of the camera. Both should have a little red film symbol on them. Press them both and hold them, and the film should begin to rewind.
Check the manual rewind button on the bottom plate of the camera. Make sure the button is not jammed under the edge of the button opening. If it is you might be able to carefully pry it out with a sharp pin or tooth pick (be careful not to pierce the button or you could damage the circuit board underneath) Or you could remove the bottom plate and reseat the button (be careful of a loose spring to the film door latch)
