Help me stop being a MIDIot

A friend gave me his MIDI keyboard and no instruction on what to do with it... Where do I go from here?

A little background: I have some experience with guitar and keyboard, though not enough to qualify myself as much of a musician. My friend left me his M-Audio Oxygen 49 when he moved away, and it's sat against a wall in my room taunting me ever since. I have no clue where to even start. I'm particularly interested in sampling and using it as a synth, but all I've done is make a few cool sounds and play the Jaws hook while pondering what to do next.
I'm interested in both technical and musical resources, and I don't mind spending a few bucks if it means an increase in quality.
