Jargon question

Can anyone point out a link or book that explains in laymenís terms (Idiots Guide) all the differences between 3:2 pull down, 4:2:2 sampling, 24p, 30p, down converting, over cranking, etc. for those of us that don't have video or film production background? I used to just connect my DV camera to the computer and hit capture. Now there seems to be so much technical jargon especially when dealing with HDV/HD video.

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

These primers from Adobe are a very good place to start: http://www.adobe.com/motion/primers.html.
