Try this link
Beginning VB.NET tutorials (http://tutorials.beginners.co.uk/index/category/85)
Extensive multi-threading tutorial (http://www.yoda.arachsys.com/csharp/threads/index.shtml)
Note that the code in the above link is in C#, but most of the concepts still apply to VB.NET except for the absence of the using construct (in .NET 1.0 and 1.1; I believe it is available in 2.0). SyncLock is the VB.NET equivalent to C#'s lock keyword.
smacker just posted a great link, so I'm adding it here:

Looks like this covers a very wide range of topics from the beginner to advanced.

I came across two books that can be downloaded off the VB6 Developer Resource site for free that may be of interest to VB6 developers moving to VB.Net, namely
1. Introducing Visual Basic 2005 for Developers
2. Upgrading Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 to Microsoft Visual Basic .NET
There are also some free ELearning courses
