Welcome to Jihad. Some will say .net and some will say PHP, MySQL, LAMP. I say go with whatever your interests are and you won't miss out. .Net will always be viable stick with C# over VB and PHP/LAMP will always be viable. Go with what interests you the most. I've worked 2 years in Linux and was paid very well. I've worked 12 years in .Net and I'm not starving.

For starters, you'll need to learn HTML and CSS. As far as server side languages, it really all depends on your preference. If you're a .Net programmer, then ASP/.net would be best, but if you currently program in c/c++ or java, then you'll probably be more comfortable with using PHP.

There are several free and open source IDE's you can use to assist in web "languages" such as Aptana Studio, NetBeans, Eclipse, etc.
