Ilford does an excellent job of providing instructions for all their products on their website.

Personally, I'd start with Ilford Multigrade IV Fiber paper. (Or you can start with RC if you don't want to deal with keeping fiber flat.)

Ilford also has an excellent range of chemistry which they yet again provide great instructions for.

Once you get the hang of things, you can start experimenting with different stuff. (www.photoformulary.com)
