In the documentation center of either V6 or V7 type:
tutorial/LinearAlgebraInMathematicaOverview

You will be taken to extensive documentation detailing
a large swath of linear algebra, including the use of the
Arnoldi method and other methods.

For some reason, this section is labeled as obsolete in
V7 and it seems hard to find from the main help browser.
I still find the bulk of it to be relevant and important.
Furthermore, I don't see anything on linear algebra under
the New in 7.0 headings.
