Here's a great place to start, even if you don't have a Nvidia card:
http://developer.nvidia.com/object/robust_shadow_volumes.html
http://developer.nvidia.com/object/inf_shadow_volumes.html

Here's another nice article:

There are dozens of other tutorials and demos online. Try a search for "infinite shadow volumes," for example.

Hope this helps :)
