Here's the cheapest way: Buy a cheap computer mic, download Audacity (free recording and editing program), you can get dRhumba for drum kits, but its not sophisticated and you can't export the sounds or save. That's all I know.

Read the stickies. There is so much information there that applies directly to what you are asking.

Outside of that, you need to tell us your budget, expectations and purpose of the recording, what instruments you are going to be recording, maybe your proposed methodology for recording said instruments, and your comfort level with different types of gear.

Could I get some more talent in the monitors, please?
