You may go through the user guide first. Its the best place to start.

Also its advisable to install OF on a linux distribution for maximum convenience of use.

And finally get the latest version of OF i.e 1.7.1 There have been numerous developments in the code since OF-1.5

very good "made by Håkan Nilsson" "PhD course in CFD with OpenSource software" 2007-2010

the stuff from Open Source CFD International Conferences might show areas where OF has been used

Hrv Jasak list of PHD made in the context of OpenFoam is interesting as well
