If you have a newer version of Mathematica 6, then go to Help -> Virtual 
Book -> Mathematica and Algorithms -> Advanced Topics -> Linear Algebra.

http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/tutorial/LinearAlgebraInMathematicaOverview.html
http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/tutorial/LinearAlgebraSparseArrays.html

These doc pages are present in *all* versions of Mathematica 6, but they 
might be a little difficult to find.
