Well, you could start here; and if you really want to know about the internals as far as Java is concerned, the source code for HashMap and HashSet are freely available. I'm not sure how much it will help you though - it's much more important to know how (and why) to generate good hashes than understanding the exact mechanics of the classes.

Niklaus Wirth's classic text book Algorithms and Data Structures is free and provides a good introduction to hashing.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
