The opensolaris forums are a logical place to start if you have specific issues:

I often find useful stuff on blogs.oracle.com, but it's not exclusively opensolaris of course.
The community documentation feels a bit dated in many places, but is still extremely useful.

Check out the LKSF book here.

The best way to learn is to dive in to it. Install OpenSolaris on a Vm and work away.

Blog O’ Matty

More than Solaris but I've found some real gems on his blog (like Oracle Sun cluster information).

The Sun Freeware site: http://www.sunfreeware.com/ is indispensable and free.

Although Solaris is dying somewhat in the hacker space, SunOS/Solaris used to be king of the hill in the unix hacker community. There is still a core of Solaris people on usenet and quite a body of online literature. Solaris is also a fairly mature, stable platform so much of the archived historical material is still relevant in a way that 10-year old docs on Linux might not be.

Ben Rockwood's blog - online & free

Sun BigAdmin - online & free, but may link to non-free Sun stuff

Some of the non-free Sun stuff is free, you just need a SunSolve account. The stuff that isn't free requires a Sun support contract of one sort or another (hardware contract access is different than Solaris OS support contract). –  Milner Jun 26 '09 at 14:57
