Default floating 'hints'...

I have been looking around for a tutorial that shows how to make the little floating hints that will pop up sometimes if you go over a certain button or something. They will usually be a clickable option that have a title in a rectangle with a small triangle at one end pointing to where the mouse hovered over to make the box pop up in the first place.
I realize that this explanation is pretty vague, but hopefully someone will know what I'm talking about.

Any ideas about a really good tutorial for this effect?

I know the description was a little vague.
Anyway, this was the closest thing I could find after searching for a while...

http://www.billybussey.com/

if you hover over the blue logo in the center you'll notice a little text box floating around after the mouse pointer as long as it's in the 'hit area'.
I would like to be able to do the same thing with a smaller zone and with a different image....(I trust they're pretty interchangable). I figured it would just be the code to define the area for the rollover and rollout and what image to bring up in the event the user performs the action.

Is there a good place with a tutorial on this kind of stuff?
