head to the FAQ emporium dude! only way i am afraid. no-one can possibly write you a reply with everything you can learn in there. And then that will only be the start. It will raise questions and issues that you have not even thought of yet....Good luck and stick with it. Don't get daunted and quit. and dont try and do it for under $500!
Even better is to head right on over to Bug Byte's most excellent FAQ to the FAQs. Just click here: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/the-faq-emporium/51489-attention-newbies-a-faq-to-the-faqs.html
