IPv6 Support for Linux

Hi folks,
As we all know that most of the ISPs are switching from IPv4 to IPv6 due to several reasons.
I have some idea about the IPv6 address format, addressing types and knowledge about Linux.
So, I want to configure a system so that it can communicate using IPv6 protocol. Some of the services which I want to use on that system are ping( to itself), ssh(to it self).
I have little knowledge about networking. So, I would like to open this thread on behalf of all those guys who want to have a knowledge about IPv6 protocol.
So, gurus it's your turn to guide us about IPv6.

Thanks in advance.

When I do ssh for Link local address as:
[root@station181 ~]# ssh fe80::20c:29ff:fe3c:ea98%eth0
its not returning back to console. Also, when it do some netstat its showing
[root@station181 ~]# netstat -anp | grep 22
tcp        0      1 ::1:32799                   fe80::20c:29ff:fe3c:ea98:22 SYN_SENT    13582/ssh
What does this mean?
Also, I n't able to telnet:
[root@station181 PerlIPv6]# telnet 2001:db8:0:f101::1
Trying 2001:db8:0:f101::1...
telnet: connect to address 2001:db8:0:f101::1: Connection refused
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused
