Load Testing my website

I want to see how my website stands up to multiple concurrent users.  I need some software that allows me to record a test (logging-on, navigating through some webpages etc), and that allows me to play back that file simulating multiple users.

Are there any recommendations for tools to do this.   (Free tools would be preferable)
