If you consider buying a book:
There are lots of complaints in the newsgroups about the outdated dirty 
hacks told in Kopkas book -- even though it might be a good introducting 
IF you have a printout of L2TABUEN.pdf at hand to check the things you 
find there.
The LaTeX companion is great, but be shure to get the /second/ edition. 
You will find good recent info  on LaTeX and lot's of points to start 
with for the most important packages.
