Here are some useful resources on the web on the history of Zen and Buddhism:

1. Historical Reference Sources for Buddhism
Written by Allan Sherlen, this paper is an examination of historical reference sources for Buddhism revealed a wide variety of sources from abbreviated biographies of Guatama Buddha in biographical encyclopedias to lengthy, monographic biographies of obscure Buddhist teachers.

2. Buddhism, an introduction
This is a very long introduction to the history and the teachings of Buddhism. I highly recommend this draft of a chapter from a forthcoming book, Anthology of Scriptures of World Religions, by John Powers and James Fieser, to be published by McGraw-Hill Publications in 1997.

3. Zen Buddhism
Here you can find a brief introduction to Zen.
