You should be able to find things like this with kpsewhich:

	Kew-PBG4:~ jonathan$ kpsewhich fontspec.sty
	Kew-PBG4:~ jonathan$

Try "texdoc fontspec".

As for the xetex manual..... ummm.... that's harder to find, as it's  
not written yet! There are some notes, though; try

   texdoc XeTeX-notes
   texdoc XeTeX-reference

Aside from those, the main resources are the sample files available  
from the download page on the xetex web site, and the helpful folks  
on the mailing list. Some day we'll have full documentation..... I hope!
