Newbie learning about multithreading

I've been reading around, trying to learn about multithreaded programming.  First major lesson, when you're talking threads, you're probably talking POSIX threads, or Pthreads. There are books of course, but I am not ready for that much detail. Here are some online resources which I have found helpful for the beginner:

Introduction to Parallel Computing tutorial by Blaise Barney, Livermore Computing.

POSIX Thread Programming tutorial by Blaise Barney, Livermore Computing

When I started looking into the POSIX standard for threads, I got a little confused about all the different standards groups attached to this thing.  Then it became apparent that the POSIX standard encompasses a whole lot more than pthreads. It's nothing less than the UNIX specification, apparently. The POSIX FAQ helped me to sort it out.
