I am coming late into this thread, as I am on digest mode.
I believe the tex&ghostscript thing was already well explained, so...

Welcome to PSTricks :-)
It is an incredibly powerful and elegant tool that I've used for years  
for many mathematical drawings.
Its consistency and integration with (La)TeX make me far more  
productive than I could otherwise be.

I'd like to second the suggestion to put


to load (most) everything and not worry which is which.

There is quite some useful tutorials on PSTricks on this site: http://sarovar.org/projects/pstricks/
And, of course, the official page at http://tug.org/PSTricks/
where you can subscribe to the PSTricks mailing list.
