If money wasn't an option, I would buy the biggest baddest
computer out there. I would buy all the software I could find.
Ok, so I am a tech junky and need help. I know this. :)

You need a computer that will keep up with you. If you are just
starting off, then you don't need top of the line. (Day dreaming
about a Power Mac G5) Umm, where was I? Oh yeah, you need an
average computer with at least 256 Ram and a 20 gig hard drive.

1.) You will need a image editor such as PhotoImpact.
2.) You will need a html editor such as Dreamweaver or(shuddering
at the thought) FrontPage.

3.) You will need fonts, fonts and more fonts. Ok, maybe not, but
I love fonts.

4.) You will need an FTP client such a CuteFTP.
5.)You will need a book on HTML. You cannot live without this. I
recommend "HTML for the World Wide Web with XHTML and CSS: Visual
QuickStart Guide, Fifth Edition". I purchased this book in the
HTML 3 version years ago and keep upgrading to the newest book.
It is wonderful.
