I think that you should really take a look at Concuerror.


Besides various tutorials, which are quite comprehensive, it also comes 
with (not always easy to read) papers that explain its technology and 
its differences from McErlang.

I am of course very partial, since I'm heavily involved in its design 
and development, but it's in many ways a superior tool.

Hope that others find it useful; some already have.
