Default What materials are needed to setup a small home network?

I'd like to install a small home network. I have 3 bedrooms, living room, and the kitchen I'd like to wire up for cat6 network and I'll also have my Linksys WRT54G wireless router installed. I'd also like to setup the network to use a single printer, and to use my media center system to play on each of my 4 tv's if possible.

Thus far I figure I'll need at least the following:
Cable line
Router
Patch panel
cat6 spool (about 300' - 500')
6 wall jacks (these will be shared with Coax and cat3)

What else will I need?

Punchdown tool for wall jacks, wire stripper, wall plates, low voltage wall boxes, maybe a wire snake for snaking cable, short patch cables for patch panel to router.
