what's a good little lighting setup?

and having the kind of lights and stands to take care of
most things a guy would want to shoot and what kinda
wattage are we talkin about here?
So far, all I have is two of these:
and just throwing diffusers in front of them.
Whats some good lights to get in order to save a little money
but still give decent lighting with filters and diffusers?
Basically, I'm asking......whats you're setup and where did
you get them?

For 'quick and dirty' hip hop videos, I like to use a Kino Flo as my key because it's small, lightweight, and requires very little power -- a nice attribute when the guy wants to rap towards a car (or in his car), I can power the fixture with an inverter and not catch things on fire!
I'd like to get a Dedo sometime as my indoor back light, because the bulbs don't break.
For guitar bands, you need a LOT of lights.

as for the question, i second the suggestion to use kinos. beware that they are almost too easy to work with tough, which will make you lazy and will cause boring results after a while. what i'm doing for my no budget stuff right now is investing in c-stands, flags, foamcore, blackwrap, gels and such. if you have means to control any light source you can use work lights, redheads, the sun, practicals, a single rented hmi or whatever your producer can afford and create fantastic stuff.
