So I've been interested in Photography for quite a while now, and finally got a Sony A200 bought for me last week.
I'd really just like some general usage tips, maybe a guide or something - as I prefer to be told what to do to start with, figure out what everything does because I find the Instruction Manual it came with, very poor.
Thanks in advance!

You wouldn't go far wrong looking at some of the ephotozine.TV tutorials available by clicking the link at the top.
Also check out these two books
The Digital Photography book by Scot Kelby - this is a good book for beginners as it outlines base settings for different subjects and situations as well as some shooting and setup advice. Its not looking to go indepth nor to explain things in full - its really just giving you a good outline and a starting point to work from
Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson - this is a more indepth book (though still aimed at the beginner) which aims to teach you how aperture, shutter speed and ISO combine to give you an exposure as well as how to get correct exposures and creativly correct exposures. Its a good book to build on the first since this book starts to answer the whys of settings and how to have more control over things.
You could also see if your local college has an evening class next term for beginners, that should be fairly soon.
goto amazon and buy the book called "Understanding Exposure" by bryan peterson
