Have a look at strobist.com for their starter setup. I purchased something similar a while back, to get my Canon 580ex off the camera and this is what I got (note the hot shoe to PC socket is used to connect my Skypoty radio trigger):
|Manfrotto 001B light stand|
|Manfrotto 026 light clamp|
|Kaiser Hot Shoe To PC Socket 1300|
