August 2008 Note: the datadeveloper.net site is "in between hosts". I am not responsible for this site, just a contributor. I don't have access to the tutorials but I have found some copies of them and am putting them here: www.learnentityframework.com/tutorials.
I've written a set of Entity Framework (and one which is more general for LINQ to Entities and LINQ to SQL) tutorials that are on DataDeveloper.NET Tutorials page.
Most of these are beginner basics. The "101 Tutorials" are designed to make sure new programmers don't get completely lost. So if you need the extra handholding, it's there, if not just skim over it to get to the juicy bits.
The Tutorials so far are:101 Tutorial:Creating an ADO.NET Entity Framework Entity Data Model
