Not easy answering that one, but I'll take the basic steps...

You need:
- A water reservoir (anything from a bucket to a cute alu-box...)
- A water pump (aquarium-thing works fine)
- Some hose
- Nipples for the reservoir, radiator and water block
- A water block for the cpu (swiftech has some good ones)
- A radiator

Put the thing together without mounting it into the computer. Testrun it for a couple of hours to check for leaks. When you're absolutely confident it has none, mount it on your cpu...

A smart move is putting some chemicals in the water to prevent algae growth. You could also get some cool red, green or blue chemicals in order to color the water...:)

I'm running a T-Bird 1,33Ghz watercooled on 1,612Ghz at the moment... It's quite fun!
