I'm fairly (ok, completely) new to this. My gym is great in a lot of ways, but no lifting platform, and really no good place to do olympic lifts. I have found a couple of spots where I can do power cleans, but even those I won't try maximal in the space I have. So I'm going to do my oly lifts on my back porch (Won't my wife and landlords be pleased!!).
I'm not rich. I plan on making a platform, but need to know what kind of olympic barbell equipment to get. I'm guessing that WAL-MART cast iron plates are out.

Check the gear on the WerkSanUSA site, and wfwclub.com.
It is critical that you get a decent bar, and the Pendlay is probably the most bang for the buck.
Where do you live? If there's an O-lift club for you to visit a few times, even if you have to drive a few hrs, it will be well worth the initial education.
I agree w/ Mark Davis --
"Compromising on basic beliefs
in a doomed effort to be liked
is as dishonest as it is futile."
