With OSM everything is possible, but you are limited by your own resources rather than what someone else provides. So what do you want to do?

Start with the beginners' guide in the Wiki http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Beginners%27_guide. This will help you understand the principles of OSM.

To include a map on your website you can use the Export tab on the main OSM page to get the html for a small map on a web page. If you want something more sophisticated you might like to look at OpenLayers to add a slippy map in a div on a web page.

You can also create a map as a static image based on OSM data by rendering it yourself. Try looking at Maperitive http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Maperitive

The Open Layers page on the wiki has some good examples: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Open_Layers
