Simple stuff.....

Get a Wacom Graphire....they are small but its good just to have one.
As for drawing the Bundle for Graphire comes with Photoshop Elements and a Painter Basic version.

That should be enough to start.
You may want to look into ArtRage if you don't like Painter. If you want more power in phot-oediting and don't want to spring for a full copy of Photoshop CSx
You can check out:
the Gimp
Project Dogwaffle
PaintShop Pro

and a dozen others...its all a matter of taste.

and continuing TruMobius's list

Adboe has a whole set of stuff
Fireworks, illustrator, Photoshop,...

The best thing about most of the things on this list, is that you can download a 30 (or 60) day trial. That's going to be your best bet at finding what you like. For graphics I use Fireworks, but for drawing with my Wacom, I use photoshop.
