Building a home studio Don't know what?

Hey- i am home recording illiterate. I am trying to build a small home studio for demoing tracks before I could to a full studio. I don't know whether or not I should go usb interface, what programs, mics, and midi's to use? Or should I use a digital workstation with burner. I want to be able to create lots of sounds as well as recording acoustic and electric, and paino. Not sure what to do. I have limited budget as well. Please Help

Here's what to do:

go to computer store and get a laptop PC. go to the music store and get the alesis usb io for $149 (comes with cubase LE), a shure sm57 mic $99, and a mic stand. Get 48 pcs 3" wedge foam from the foam factory on ebay for $67. the foam comes with spray glue, put the foam at random places around the room and in all the corners.
