The ParkTools page recommended above is excellent.

When reassembling you may have bearing-balls held in a circular pressed metal cage. These are used by manufacturers to speed assembly, they are easy to fit but only go in one way around - there is an inside and an outside to the cage arrangement - you'll soon see which way. If you have loose bearing-balls then it's a bit fiddly - there are a couple of ways of dealing with this - either stick the bearings in place with grease a la ParkTools - or alternatively if you have a few small magnets you can stick them around the outside of the hub and the bits will stay in place nicely.
