I would recommend Sun's Java Tutorial, specifically the "Creating a GUI with JFC/Swing" trail.
And with regards to using a "layout manager inside of another layout manager" it's really quite simple. You would do it by simply setting the layout of a panel to the second layout you want and then adding it to the original layout. The easiest way to think about it is to split your interface into sections, using a panel for each section with whatever layout is needed. Then use another layout to bring each panel into the final UI design.

I'm not sure how well it covers Layout Managers inside of Layout managers but "JFC Unleashed" covers a lot of things that other Swing books don't cover. I recommend that.
p.s. I found the book on some crazy sale for $4.99 at Borders bookstore a while ago.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
