If you have some money check out a book called Top-Tones for the Saxophone by Sigurd M. Rascher...explains a lot about overtones and gives you exercises. I know it helped a lot getting me started on altissimo...

What HE said. Meanwhile, take a look here: http://www.acsu.buffalo.edu/~museyadz/altiss.html

And use the search feature on this site: there's a lot of information about this, and a zillion other topics here.
