maybe best to buy the dummies books. Best way of learning code etc is to use books as a reference. And don't buy the Adobe Classroom books, they're really crap and way too expensive.
Don't p*ss me off! I am running out of places to hide the bodies.

Agreed, it takes a little time, although my son also mastered it from scratch, I would say a couple of weeks playing around with it, will give you the confidence you need, to build your own website. In fact many scripts are already done, so its a matter of playing around with them, and setting up a server. Having the time is the essence to fiddle around with it. The basics are very easy to take in.

Before you learn Dreamweaver learn html which is integrated into it and will help you understand how to 'tweek' the code;

http://www.w3schools.com/Flash/default.asp

This site is expensive but has some useful tutorials though;

first question: do you have a copy of the software?

if the answer is no, you can download 30 day trial versions of dreamweaver and flash from the manufacturers website. The downlaods are full versions ie; they come with help files and examples.

I purchased a copy of dreamweaver a couple of months back, around $700+ sing dollars. if you are a student you can get it cheaper.

Speaking from experience the best way to learn the software is simply to follow the interactive tutorials (included in the help files). there are plenty of online resources if you get stuck.

You can download and try, evaluation copies are out there for this purpose. And if you could get someone to give you 'homework' or you can find some online tutorials it will be better too.
