Starting from PYTHON

I have some PYTHON experience but I am very much a novice with ARCGIS.  I would like to incorporate ARCGIS into my PYTHON programs.

All the help-files and tutorials I have found so far assume somebody in the opposite situation;  expertise in ARCGIS and wanting to incorporate PYTHON into their work.

Does anybody know of any good references (books, web-pages,...) for somebody in my situation.  I will be using ARCGIS 9.2, PYTHON 2.5 and WINDOWS XP.

I guess one option is to bite the bullet and take the time to learn ARCGIS through point-and-click but I'm just more comfortable with scripts.  Perhaps my age is showing.

Thanks for any suggestions,
Wayne Hajas
