I have been trying to find out the speed (mi. or km.) of the stealth bomber but searches of many encyclopedias turned up nothing. I have never used is system before, so I hope I am doing this right.....?

I am pretty sure that the B-2 is a subsonic aircraft (it does not have to be fast if it is stealthy enough) which would put its maximum speed at 600 - 650 MPH. Its actual max speed is probably classified.

Try locating a book called Jane's Aircraft in your local library. It should have detailed information -- as well as good guesses on the classified stuff.
