Besides the very skimpy info in most owners manuals, there's a ton of tutorials available on the net, and even some ipad apps. Search by topic, ie. "adjusting rear derailleur" and you'll find a choice of print & photo, or video instructions, both free and not. I suggest reviewing two different tutorials, until you have a sense of what's involved then starting with the basics and moving beyond that as you gain experience.
If you get stumped on a particular detail there are hundreds of people available to help or kibbitz here.
