A Short Intro to Naive Bayesian Classifiers
Tutorial Slides by Andrew Moore
I recommend using Probability For Data Mining for a more in-depth introduction to Density estimation and general use of Bayes Classifiers, with Naive Bayes Classifiers as a special case. But if you just want the executive summary bottom line on learning and using Naive Bayes classifiers on categorical attributes then these are the slides for you.
