If your router vendor supports IPv6 (surprisingly, many do!):

lab-router#conf t
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
lab-router(config)#ipv6 ?

  dhcp               Configure IPv6 DHCP
  general-prefix     Configure a general IPv6 prefix
  hop-limit          Configure hop count limit
  host               Configure static hostnames
  icmp               Configure ICMP parameters

  pim                Configure Protocol Independent Multicast
  prefix-list        Build a prefix list
  route              Configure static routes
  router             Enable an IPV6 routing process
  unicast-routing    Enable unicast routing

lab-router(config)#ipv6 unicast-routing
lab-router(config)#interface tengigabitEthernet 1/1
lab-router(config-if)#ipv6 ?
IPv6 interface subcommands:
  address         Configure IPv6 address on interface
  cef             Cisco Express Forwarding for IPv6
  dhcp            IPv6 DHCP interface subcommands
  enable          Enable IPv6 on interface
  mfib            Interface Specific MFIB Control
  mld             interface commands
  mtu             Set IPv6 Maximum Transmission Unit
  nd              IPv6 interface Neighbor Discovery subcommands

And then chances are good that you find useful training material on
their Web sites, often not just command descriptions, but actual
deployment guides.
