This blog entry has a large number of resources for you.
About 1/3 the way down there is a section on SilverLight in SharePoint, this is probably the best place to start for the specifics on SL and SharePoint.
I have created some SilverLight applications that I use within SharePoint. For my environment I use the "SilverPart" web part to host the XAP files. I can store the XAP files within a document library in SharePoint. I have been developing for SilverLight 3.0 and SilverPart seems to run them fine even though there is no 3.0 version selection in the web part settings.
SilverPart 2.0 from CodePlex:
Good luck
