Does anyone have some nice easy tutorials for making some nice maps? Mapping is one thing I don't quite get how to do, so if anyone knows of any good books or online tutorials please post them.

And about the pivots, when I try to rotate pivot points (that is rotating the pivot point, not the object) in the layout I can get it so it doesn't also rotate the object. Is there anything I am missing? Right now I am making a road bike and -if you know anything about bikes- the fork, when it goes throught the frame, is at a slight angle, about at angle\. So I also need the fork to rotate at \ angle, and not at |. So when I try the rotate pivot point command it also moves the who objects, not just the point of rotation. I hope this is making sense, so if anyone knows the answer, please post.
