That goes for both users and developers, except that it equally applies to developers who say "I" instead of "you"

Now I got an opportunity to work on a new assignment where I have to lead 4-5 junior developers. All this kind of calls for some Lead and Manager(not a pure manager per se though) skills for firt-time Managers/Leads like me.
Here are my new assignment details:
a. My current assignment is a new assignment where I need to work on 7 years old Web Application based on technology like Java, JEE, Struts, JSP, Asynchronous messaging, event based messaging etc.
b. I have to lead a team of 4-5 developers
c. we need to work on bug fixes or work on change requests that can be major enhancements to the web application or bug fixes
Now my question is, when a change request comes, how do I estimate the effort for myself and my team members for which I am the lead ?
how do I schedule my project ?
how do I manage my team members day-to-day tasks, estimate their task efforts? estimate the change requests? how do I manage my project ?
are there any good books that can answer my questions for first time lead-developer or manager(not a pure manager per se though) like me ?
