You could start with pages like:
and the related pages listed at the bottom.

Some important details are left out of the above page...and I'll mention
that in the ~2 years we've been selling MPLS VPNs, I've had several
instances of tag-switching getting really screwy, ranging from mostly
harmless routing loops (that loop just once before going the right way) to
just not forwarding packets at all, requiring reboots and in the most
recent case, config changes (to fix a problem that "just happened all of a
sudden") that should not have reasonably made a difference.
