As an online guide, I recommend the piano course Pianoforall. It has both traditional and popular music techniques. There are many helpful videos that show exactly what notes to play and what hand positions to use.

It comes with 200 videos that play with Quicktime. The ten ebooks that come with it are illustrated and have both audio and video in them. There are 500 audios. Note that you can play the videos outside of the ebooks in the video Quicktime folders.
