I am watchin Ebay for a good deal on a Shimano crankset. I am finding the different model numbers to be confusing: 751/752, 760/761, 580/582. Is there a place that explains all of the different crankset models, the bottom brackets they will work with, and the weights of each one?

The 5xx would be the cheaper heavier Deore or Deore LX cranks, the 7xx are the Deore XT (lighter and more $), and the 9xx series would be XTR (lightest and most expensive).

You can check Shimano.com, look under products, then mountain bike, then pick the component level, then look at cranks.

An example of the difference between the 751 vs 752 can be seen in this thread (be sure to read all the way through!):
