I will take a look at those links, thank you for your help.
Also, I found the following books on Amazon.com:
1. Programming Flash Communication Server - Brian Lesser (O'Reilly)
2. ActionScript for Flash MX: The Definitive Guide, Second Edition - Colin Moock
3. The ActionScript 3.0 Quick Reference Guide: For Developers and Designers Using Flash: For Developers and Designers Using Flash CS4 Professional (Adobe Developer Library) - David Stiller;
4. Essential ActionScript 3.0 - Colin Moock
Are you familiar with these books? If yes, do you think they will be good resources?

Flash MX is really out of date.
I think it would be advisable to learn AS3 and perhaps have a good reference book available... can't really advise that one is better than another.

other Flash Forums:
