Stocks V / Viacom, Inc.

Can someone please tell me the difference between buying shares of VIA and VIAb? I have heard that one is a "preferred share" (I think that is VIAb, right?), but they both cost about the same, and both prices seem to fluctuate together. So, wouldn't buying VIA be the same as buying VIAb?

On a more general note, what do you Fools think about buying Viacom before they buy back the $1B of shares that they have announced?
