I am also a beginner, i went all out and got the Canon rebel 550D(T2i) and i love it. Everything is really simple on this camera, so i def recommend a rebel, but then again i've nvr used any other kind of camera.
For software i am using IPhoto, since it came free with my MacBook.

Be aware that most people here use the shift key when they type.

Nikon has a new camera, the D3100 that you will want to take a look at. It should start shipping in a few more weeks.

Photoshop CS5 is a $700 application, For a beginner Photoshop Elements 9 should be more than enough to start with. If you later decide to upgrade to CS5 Adobe will give you credit for owning Elements 9 (be sure and register it).

Photoshop Lightroom 3 is primarily an image database management application that also has the same Raw converter CS5 has (Adobe Camera Raw, ACR). Elements has a de-featured version of ACR. Whichever camera you decide on will also include a basic Raw converter.

You can download free 30-day trials of Adobe's software.

There is also an open-source image editor very similar to Photoshop Elements. It is called GIMP (www.gimp.org), and is free.

A less expensive alternative to Photoshop is made by Corel, and is called Paint Shop Pro. Photo Editing Software ? Corel PaintShop Photo Pro X3 Ultimate
