Isolate the problem first... Is it the fork or the wheel?
If the wheel shakes, wobbles, or flexes, check the build. Check also if the hub cones are loose and the hub bearings/races still in good condition. Repack and tighten as necessary.
To check if the headset/fork is loose, apply the front brake then rock the bike back and forth (assuming the front wheel is good). Any play will indicate a loose headset.
Check on the ParkTool website as AndrewP suggested. Everything you need to know about bike repair and maintenance is there.
