Ever since I've started working on digital art back in college, I've been told that Illustrator provides the cleanest line work possible; granted, my classmates and professors never used software in class beyond what Adobe provided.  Illustrator has been satisfactory for inking my pencil sketches up until now, but I'm frustrated in its limitations, especially when adjusting anchor points to get my line work to look as good as I want it eats up a lot of my time.

I'm ready to give Photoshop a go, but I don't want to jump in without knowing what I'm dealing with.  I've glanced at tutorials before but I can't remember which ones would be the most beneficial.  Any advice on the best methods?

To give some insight on what I'm working with, I have Photoshop CS5 and a Wacom Intuos 4 tablet.
