There is an FAQ on the topic:

http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/stat/stmfail.html

Scroll down a little until you get to the section on competing risks.
This section describes how to do a Cox Model with competing risks in
Stata. 

There are many survival books with a chapter on competing risks, but one
I particularly like is by Marubini and Valsecchi, " Analysing Survival
Data from Clinical Trials and Observational Studies". Wiley: Chichester,
1995.

Marubini and Valsecchi discuss, among other things, the cumulative
incidence function, which is the equivalent of 1 - KM (the Kaplan-Meier
curve) when competing risks are present. To compute this you will find
the user-written command -stcompet- very useful. Type

findit stcompet

on the command line in Stata when your computer is linked to the
internet.
