The links provided above are great.
The whole biting/attacking thing is kitty play. If you watch two kitties, they chase each other around and bite/maul/swat each other non-stop.
Part of what they are learning is to use their teeth to control prey without actually chomping down.
It's cute when they are little kittens, but trust me you do not want to encourage them to gnaw on your hand because there is going to come a day when those claws and teeth really, really hurt.
You have to just force yourself to say "no" and end the play whenever they attack your hands.
Kitty fishing poles. Any toys that dangle and can be attacked. A second kitty playmate. These are all good outlets for normal kitty play behaviors.
