Just add a cheap fridge (full size if you can find a cheap one), and you're in business. Add more kegs, taps, lines, etc. when you get the money (don't worry you'll find a way! ).

5 Gallon AG System: < $160 + s/h
Turkey Fryer setup - 8g Aluminum Kettle + Burner + propane tank: $100
Amazon.com: Bayou Classic 3016 30-Quart Outdoor Turkey Fryer with Basket and Fry Pot: Home & Garden

Cheap 60qt Ice Chest - $25
Walmart.com: Igloo 60 Qt. Ice Cube Roller Cooler: Camping

Ball valve, braid, other stuff - $30
Bargain Fittings

That's IT! Seriously, you don't need another kettle just use your bottling bucket to hold your first runnings. The 8g aluminum kettle serves as both your hot liquor tank and the boil kettle.

That looks like a good plan. But if I am going to do 10 gallon batches I will need a 10 gallon keg and a bigger kettle.

True, didn't catch that part about 10g batches. In that case, I'd still get the Bayou classic kit. I still use that burner for my boil kettle, and that aluminum pot will work fine as an HLT. A keg from the scrapyard or decomissioned from a brewery will be <$40. Add another $40 for at least a ball valve and necessary hardware for making a boil kettle. You might be pushing the budget a little bit, but 10g is worth it!

Will that burner accomodate a Keggle? Also, can you mash 5 gallon batches in a 15.5 gallon Sanke?

Yes and yes. The bayou classic needs a little modification in order to keep the keggle far enough away from the flame. I use a small BBQ grill I picked up at Lowe's for $12. It's not pretty, but it works great.
