ok, i have been searching all day...

yes, im a novice at flash...

what i want to lear is how to take simple text.

i know how to make it a hyperlink.

but i want to learn how to make it so when a user rollsover the link it grows to a bigger font and changes color slightly.

i have found countless tut's on how to make it change color, but not grow in font size.

not just a basie 12 to 14 font change.. i am looking for a smooth "growing" effect transition...

anyone got a good tut i can learn from?

I would start by making your buttons a movieclip instead, then within the movieclip add an onRollOver gotoAndPlay(2) which is where the animation takes place.
So you have your button on frame 1 of the movieclip, you then onRollOver go to frame 2 which plays until frame 10 and has a motion tween to scale up in size.

This is just an example but should give you enough to go on.
