I am trying to learn Silverlight.
For the application that i am developing i am using the ADO.Net Entity Framework as a Data Model.

The questions that i have are :
1. How do i create an N-Tier Application in Silverlight esp. when the solution is divided into Silveright Application and Web Application?

2. If a create a Data Model using ADO.Net Entity Framework in the Web Application, where do i create the Bussiness Logic?

3. Do i need to have some kind of Web Service i.e WCF Services, RIA etc as a bridge between by Data Model and my Bussiness Model?

4. Any good article or Video or a good explanation would be really helpful.

Here is a good link:
ScottGu's Silverlight Tips, Tricks, Tutorials and Links Page

And here is another
ScottGu's Silverlight 4 Training Kit[^]

In all likelihood, You would need a web service for the business logic.
RIA cannot be the bridge, that would be the entire application.

The Silverlight UI would be part of the web application - so in effect, you cannot divide the application into a web app and a Silverlight app.
