We all come to that point someday. I can remember I was really hating CSS one day and almost went back to tables also. It (CSS) - first in the beginning - never did what I expected.
Nowadays, I (almost) never use tables (except for tabular data) anymore. If you understand the basics of CSS it's a very powerful language and I'm doing a whole design from psd to XHTML/CSS in like a few hours.
Now to your problem; I agree that handling advanced forms with loads of fields/buttons/checkboxes etc is hard to with CSS. Like for my last website I had to make a form with a few input fields next to eachother aligned properly. I have chosen to use tables for that.
That's the form, you can scroll down to the table. In my opinion it's just a waste of time to align such fields with CSS. (It's even more or less tabular data. :-p)
I've gathered some links on some CSS forms tutorials:
Good luck! (And don't go back to a tables! At least not for your layout)
