I'm interested too by the question .
Renderman is a high end product and designed for big STUDIOS , it's too hard to find tuts for it.

Try these, and the Exluna site. The BLue Moon REndering Tools Manual explains a bit as well.

I think prman manuals aren't enough clear for the novice and "The RenderMan Companion" book is oriented to programmers, the authors think the readers know how to compile with a C compiler and some other things that scare newbies and artists.

Sites with tutorials and information? (

and of course

im a complete novice when it comes to renderman.. but after using it the past week or so i see why it is being used by large studios. its so powerful that it makes the default rendering/shading network on maya look like dog poo... :D

well, it's definitely not for your average artist that's for sure... has some nice samples and links on Renderman as well..
