Texture question

Hi all, I am in the process of getting my head around materials and textures. I see that when rendering to get "bump" I require a "normals" map. Since I am new to this what is the difference between a "norma"l and a "bump" map?

Normal maps provide more information than bump maps, since they can specify direction as well as depth.

A good place to get free texture with their normal maps is... ... page1.html

You can tell the normal map because it's bluish.
