In addition to the above XNA book suggestion, I'd like to suggest Learning XNA 3.0. I read that myself and found it to be useful. It may also be a lighter read than the book suggested by the previous poster, which could be a good or a bad thing.

XNA is really easy and there are already lots of examples online of how to do common tasks. You can get started by installing Visual C# 2008 Express in addition to XNA Game Studio 3.1 (currently the most recent version).

There are various tutorials, but you'll probably want to get started with the 2D games tutorial. Once you install Visual C# 2008 Express and XNA Game Studio, you can start a new XNA project by selecting File --> New Project --> Windows Game (3.1).

FYI, XNA for XBox didn't support multithreading last time I checked (that very well may have changed), so if you create a game for the XBox just keep in mind that you may not be able to use multiple threads. However, you should be fine working with multiple threads on a Windows XNA game.
