I copied the following from MSDN 2002, that might help. Though I would'nt suggest to start with Beta version of .NET. Rather try to get the released evaluation copy somehow...

For an accelerated introduction to the .NET Framework, follow these steps in sequence:

Read the Overview of the .NET Framework topic.
Scan the Tutorials, beginning with the Introduction to Developing with the .NET Framework tutorial.
Review the QuickStarts, a series of brief, illustrated samples that demonstrate key .NET Framework technologies.
Scan the descriptions of the Samples, identify the samples that are relevant to your development needs, and install the samples from <FrameworkSDK>\Samples. Use the samples as a foundation for developing your own .NET Framework applications.
As you begin to develop your applications, continue to use the .NET Framework documentation as a primary source of information. The documentation is compiled into an easy-to-use Help file that is displayed in the Microsoft Document Explorer viewer. The viewer includes features such as an index keyword search, a full-text search, and filtering mechanisms that enable you to customize how the information is displayed.
