i don't see a downloadable tutorial or educational dvd here, so you either owe me and everyone else who looks here one, or, henceforth forthwith, all further posts of this nature in this section should be... moved to another forum!
or sub forum.
or asked on irc! :|

oh and here are some free tutorial for starting out with digital painting:
http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=107217 <-- bumskee's thread, probably what you want.
Check: http://dvd.massiveblack.com/downloads.html as well.
and of course, amazon.
Although, to be frank, the best foundation is the one you build for yourself.
When you learn the basics of and get comfortable with line, perspective, light&shade, composition,
they will carry over to everything you approach, Photoshop or otherwise.
Reading thousands of tutorials will not get you anywhere as long as you're not actually DOING the things described.
Doing, experiencing and reflecting.
If we postulate that, I am an ass, I might, hypothetically of course, go on to say that, the basics you are looking for are these, above mentioned, basics.
NOT the basics of Photoshop, because, well, the basics of Photoshop are rather self-explanatory and technical (paint-brush tool paints, gradient tool makes gradient... Opacity scale is well, a way to select in percent how "opaque" you want your paint).
There is no short cut to getting comfortable with the digital medium at large. You have to get your feet wet.
Try using the "SEARCH" feature next time though ;)
