Well, for starters, Game Dev site has a bunch of useful articles that you can look at.

OpenGL tutorials: NeHe

OpenGL is basically a library that will render triangles to a window. You'll find that most of 3d is basically writing a model loader for model formats and then telling opengl to draw a particular set of triangles or other shapes to the screen. Take a look at NeHe and work through the first couple of tutorials. You'll understand better after doing it yourself.
