So many questions with VB.NET Web applications (active server pages)... any good books?

P: n/a
Hi everyone.
I've been working with VB6 for a while now, I'm feeling pretty damn
confortable with it, but find myself wondering about VB.NET and web
applications. So I thought I'd get my feet wet.
Well - let me tell ya - there's a whole lotta stuff that I need to teach
myself. I have a whole slew of questions - to many and propbably just too
basic to go into here - so I am hoping that someone out there can suggest a
book that I can pick up from Amazon.
All of my questions are to do with creating web pages within VB.NET. I don't
want to go into ASP scripting or java or anything else - I just want to
stick with VB.NET syntax and language.
Whatever book I get should be able to adress these things (all by example
and sample code) - examples and code snippets are important only becuase I
am very green here to VB.NET and web development on a whole:

1) How display popup windows (for like login functions)
2) Go into detail on things like session veriables so I can maintain
seperate content based on if a user is logged in or not.
3) Some database information (although I am pretty comfortable in this area
so I may not need much help if any).
4) Login/security design recomendations.
5) A demonstration on how to do the typical functions you'd need for
shopping cart transactions.
6) A demonstration on how to do the typical functions you'd need for user
group forums.
7) How to work with frames - or an alternative similiar screen design if
this can't be done within VB.NET (using headers, a side contents section,
etc.)
8) How to have a running counter for things like how many people are logged
into the site.

Any book suggestions that can address these things would be great.

Thanks.

I would suggest buying ASP.NET Unleashed, by Stephen Walther. I use it all
the time...in fact, my binding is falling apart! I believe every question
you asked below is covered in it.
