I'm not going to be a jerk and tell you to use the fine search tool that the forum provides, but most would. ;)

This thread is a great FAQ for kegging.

Usually homebrewers use 5 gallon kegs that were once used for holding soda syrup by Coke/Pepsi. Outlay for a simply, one keg system would be CO2 tank and regulator, gas line, keg tap of some kind, beer line and a party tapper connected to the end of the beer line.

Sanitation and cleanliness are still very important and some people think that the keg is a bit of a pain to clean, but you only clean one keg for a 5 gallon batch, and not 50+ bottles.

Everything you need. Other websites have kits as well. This just an example that shows all parts needed. This is using a ball lock Cornie Keg. You can sometimes find Cornie kegs with the standard sanke couplers (think about kegs you see at parties) and you would need a sanke tap instead of the ball lock posts. Other equipment would be the same.
