fe80::/10 - Link local, those-MAC-derived addresses, at least for
Ethernet. It uses a mechanism knows as SLAAC to come up with, at least
on Ethernet, theoretically unique address.
fec0::/10 - Site local, like 192.168.x.x, 10.x.x.x, etc...
fc00::/8 - Unique Local, allocation still up in the air last I knew.
But these are like a real network address but not routeable (?).
fd00:/8 - Another kind of Unique Local, even more mysterious than
fc00::/8. But you can get one from SixXS who seem to have appointed
themselves as a registrar. This is what we use internally (one of
these) for now.

I.e., it is too difficult to plan and thus to set up in a small to
medium company environment. This is still a technology for big
companies or trivial SOHO deployments. That's one more reasons why
IPv6 has less take up in Europe and the US, where the IPv4 shortage
is not felt.
