Help me get my game on! Or at least fake it. :)

Hooookay. So I've been asked to play in a charity poker tournament. I'm fierce at craps and was a pool shark in my past life so it appeals to me, but I've just never had a weekly poker game or anything... truth is I haven't played poker in years. [more inside]

Resources for playing in my first Hold'em tourney?

I'm playing in my first Texas Hold'em tournament next week. It's pretty low-key (charity fundraiser, $100 buy-in, $1,000 first prize, ~40 players). I've played in a monthly limit game for a few years, doing reasonably well. Any advice/websites/books that could help me with basic strategies for this type of tournament play?
