I would suggest taking a router course. Until you do you will be making a lot of expensive firewood. It's really worth it, just to answer the question you asked. Having said that, I will try to add my help to Bob's. If there is a bearing on the bit, that bearing is meant to guide the piece against the side of a piece. This allows for more free hand type work. If the bearing is at the tip of the straight bit it is generally used with a template of some sort taped to your wood.
The bit with no bearing is meant to be used with some sort of fence or other gadget to help guide your router or the wood if your router is in a table.

Anyone else feel free to clear up any mistakes I may have stated.
