I'll second Dean's recommendations, and I have both of these (and wish I had both when I started out).    The forums are great for helping to solve issues but can be difficult to use as a guide for starting out, as there are so many differing opinions on what is, and is not, the way to go.   There is no substitute to getting a good foundation.
