    I hope this helps Skyhawk, and a warm welcome to the forum.
    Hello and welcome to the forum skyhawk. As you can see from the replies you asked a very open-ended question. At the very least some idea of your budget would help immensley with recommendations. In the meantime I totally agree with Marshall (Makuser) that yop should read the treatise from OleCuss - it's excellent.
