Even if I don't home brew much a kegerator still isn't a bad idea for me since I work for a beer distributor and can get all sorts of 1/6 barrels for really cheap.
Do extract with specialty grain first. All of the equipment will carry over when making the jump to full grain, pretty much all you'll need is a mash tun (can be made out of a cooler for relatively cheap - google it) and a bigger brew kettle.

Extract just simplifies and shortens the process giving you less chances to fuck it up. Either way, sanitization is the biggest key. Sanitize the hell out of anything and everything that will touch the wort after the boil. Just keep a sink full of sanitizer on hand when brewing and if in doubt, dunk it.
