It's good to build a PC from scratch. If you're not sure what to buy, you can go online and look for a barebones computer--which means you can get a mobo, CPU, memory and other components and put them together yourself.
You can comparision shop here http://pctechbytes.pgpartner.com/
Regarding Operating Systems...I would learn a 9.x Operating System (like Windows 98 and ME). XP is current and quite similar to Windows 2000 Pro.
You should also invest in tools like a small PC repair kit and a multimeter to check voltages. You can also find them in the link above.

Even with all of the posts on this message board, we don't get questions about that stuff.
But if you want to learn it, I'm sure you could get some hardware on Ebay.

At the same time though, you are living in a new day... Sata drives no longer have jumpers... Alot of add on graphics cards are plug and play, etc... So the point is to ready yourself for what you want to do with computers... I mean, don't learn how to operate the worlds first computer when you'll probably never come into contact with it... (or at least don't spend much time doing so)...
Go through a lot of the walk through tutorials, understand the different hardwares and go from there...Setting up software is basic management and is usually self explanatory... Read the specs of certain hardware and learn how it applies to what your doing...Like the difference between AGP and PCI-e.... This kind of analysation will prove very useful in learning to build... One more thing that I hinted to earlier, definitely decide what you want to be able to do... Set your goals and work toward them...
