You'll want to become familiar with Macromedia Fireworks MX 2004, Dream Weaver MX 2004, Flash MX 2004, and Contribute if possible. You can buy them as a package...

There are tutorials in the form of movies on the macromedia website, also fireworks has a tutorial or two that comes with it.

You will use all of them but Dream Weaver is the program you will upload your site through. It is also the program that will do all the CSS, HTML, etc code for you.

Go and explore at http://flashkit.com You will find tons of tutorials on flash.
