Writing in Assembly using NASM

I'm interested in learning Assembly Language as a hobby.  I would like to know how to start.  Hopefully some links to good tutorials, basic sample code, and where i can get the tools needed for programming using Assembly.  Since this is a hobby, i don't want to spend money to get the tools for writing in Assembly.  I've looked around and NASM seems to be the free way of doing this.  But i still don't completely understand what else i need to write code in Assembly.  I have gotten way to used to writing code using Visual C++, Visual BASIC 6.0 which handle everything in the background.  

What program should i use for managing my project (Looking at and changing my source code) and what program(s) are needed to compile them into a usable program ready for use?

Thanks in Advance!

All i am really looking for is a simple, preferably DOS based NASM example "Hello World" application.  I have downloaded RadASM and looks good, but i don't know how to make a simple "Hello World" application.  dimitry, do you know how to make a simple "Hello World" application using NASM (preferably in the RadASM IDE)?
