I bought 3d studio max at the beginning of the year. I have learn all i can from it by me self, reading the manual, tutorial book, etc. Now that i have transfer to another school. This school that i'm in only uses softimage XSI.

So i was wondering is there any tutorial out there, that teaches me the basic of XSI. Such as panning, zooming, etc.

I doubt you find tutorials about such basic things. You are better to read the Fundamentals (that comes with XSI) to learn these things and the basics of workflow.

Use the S key. With it you can do all the viewport navigation.
S+LMB will pan
S+MMB will dolly
S+RMB will orbit

To find tons of tutorials, visit those links:

Hope this helps
