    Well a vector mask is used with vector graphics, it's Photoshop's lame way of being a little brother/sister to Illustrator. The best thing to do in my opinion would to create vector graphic in Photoshop or download a vector graphic from the web (There are plenty of free ones out there) and play around with the vector mask, pen tool, the direct tool, paint brush, etc to see what they do. The nice thing about vector graphics is you can make the bigger without losing any detail or information. If you are really interested in vector graphics I would suggest switching over to Illustrator.

    Vector masks in Photoshop CS3 are a bit labor-intensive to build, but they’re also much cleaner and more accurate than those created with pixel selection tools. And remember, you can edit the mask at any time—just click the vector mask thumbnail in the layer, choose the Direct Selection Tool, and then use it to tweak the vector shape.
