How do I start my own business?

I am a student right now, majoring in Web Design. I want to be a freelance web designer, but I do eventually want to build a business out of it. After a few years I want to have a decent client base and I want to start hiring people on right out of school to help them get the experience they need sence it's kinda hard to get a job without it. I have big dreams for this, but I want to know what i need to do to make a business out of it. Do I need an IRS number? How do I get one? How do I know how much to take out for taxes? I need to know everything lol.
