There's a new feature tutorial here on flipCode entitled Using Inheritance And Virtual Functions, by Alex Tchernychov. As the title hints, this tutorial explains how to work with C++ inheritance and virtual functions. Here's a chunk from the introduction:

" C++ is notorious for having misleading keywords which mean completely different things in different contexts. This was done on purpose, to minimize reserved keywords in the language. As a result we have a lot of keywords like virtual, public, protected the meanings of which are poorly understood by many people. To clear this up, we will develop a conceptual vocabulary of basic object oriented design concepts and then take a look at how C++ expresses each of them using its heavily context reliant syntax. Doing so gives you a valuable feel for what things like inheritance, pure virtual functions and so on really mean to you when you design a program. "
