Check these out :D

Maps Of The Solar System: Earth (http://maps.jpl.nasa.gov/earth.html) - some nice large image maps for downloading

Earth (http://gw.marketingden.com/planets/earth.html) - excellent, hi-res images for downloading.

I'll look around for a tutorial....

Here is an EXCELLENT earth tutorial - Photoreal Earth Tutorial (http://personal.southern.edu/~dascott/tutorial01/nasa-earth.htm) :)
It's for Lightwave, but I guess it would be easy to apply the same method in any app ;)

Hey, was just popping by down here, the earth has kind of been a hobby, or have had to do it for many projects, here's another great resource:

http://visibleearth.nasa.gov/Regions/Global/

So far the highest resolution free clouds I've seen, and if you request it, they'll even give access to 21k-42k res land maps.

Have fun and load up on the RAM :D
