    There shouldn't really be that much to speak of. Fedora Core 2 and onwards have very good built-in IPv6 support. As does Gentoo if compiled with the ipv6 USE flag. I'd imagine other distros do to. It should work more or less out of the box.

    Is there anything specific documentation you have in mind?

    Generally, I'd recommend that you check out using the /sbin/ip tool instead of the ifconfig/route/arp/etc. suite of programs. It's much more usable with IPv6 than those older programs. Also, if you intend to run an IPv6 router, you should check out radvd for stateless autoconfiguration.
