You might want to check out "Programming C#" by Jesse Liberty, 3rd edition,
pub. O'Reilly, ISBN 0-596-00489-3.

The 3rd edition has complete coverage of .NET 1.1 and in this edition they
added VS.NET 2003, but not too much (50 pages out of 700 something).

I would recommend it to anyone.

Its a great book for a beginner and a pro. It has all basic coverage
