I've always used http://www.subnetmask.info/ to help with all that jazz.

Benefits/Drawbacks? It's not a benefit/drawback thing. It is a way of managing address space, an analogy might be n the way in which geographical borders define countries. That's my ha'pennies worth anyway.

Type "define:subnet" in google for loads more info, descriptions and such.
