What are the bare essentials for recording vocals? Hardware, that
is. I am using Sonar 4, if that
makes a difference.

BARE essentials, microphone and sound interface for the PC.

VERY nice to have (really, really should have), preamp and compressor.

There are a few budget audio interfaces out there now that have a pre amp built into them. Most are USB or firewire type interfaces. USB being the most common and they are pretty decent as far as the pre amp section goes.

I suggest staying away from the USB type microphone. It looks nice at a budget price, but they are very flaky to install and get to work correctly.

Thanks for the help. It looks like I'm going to have to find some $$$.
