What? Why would you tell him to get that? Getting Mr. Beer will just hold you over for so long. You'll want a better setup in no time. I'd get something similar to the kit in mule's post. I think most of us probably started with a kit like that one. My initial kit had a carboy and a ferm. bucket rather than a ferm. bucket and a bottling bucket.
On startup you'll also need sanitizer, big kettle, and your ingredients for your first batch. Eventually bottles too.
Remember, you can make great beer with any kit, but like most of us you'll probably end up sinking lots more money into your new and awesome hobby.
Check your LHBS too. Thats where I got mine.
