For the first question, any introductory paper in Description Logics
gives you the answer. 
At the page <http://www.cs.man.ac.uk/~franconi/dl/course/> you will
find pointers to the relevant introductory literature.
By the end of the year, an handbook will be published:
The Description Logic Handbook: Theory, Implementation and
Applications. Cambridge University Press, 2002. ISBN
0521781760. Edited by F. Baader, D. Calvanese, D. McGuinness,
D. Nardi, P. F. Patel-Schneider.

For the latter question, I'm not aware of any complete formal study
about the relation between the two formalisms.

Hope this helps
