well ...
just took a quick look over it. it looks to me like all of that can be done using html, css and javascript/jquery, so what tools you'll need ...
notepad to write the code (or any other text editor) and a browser to test your pages.

like stultuske said the 1st site can be done mostly with html, js and css and your 2nd site looks like he's using flash, maybe don't go that way if you don't want to learn flash. else go for it.

i would add graphic editor like photoshop for the images you'll be using. you can get a 30 days trial here: photoshop trial

shortcut: type (free web template) in google, grab one and modify it.

To create a new website you can see this tutorials:
http://frontier.userland.com/stories/storyReader$85

lousy advice, the site is filled with 'examples in images' while the images are not found.
those who created those 'tutorials' might want to follow some tutorials themselves.

besides, this link is not about 'creating a website', it's a 'I provide a template for those who can't create their own website' site, pretending to be unique in some way, while the layout (css) itself is crappy to say the least. for a template that's supposed to be attractive to users, they may want to start with learning how to decorate their links.

the 'underlined blue text' link is sooo 1985 :P

Haha the tutorial shall tell you how to create a site using an $1,100 software title. If you really want to control your design and layout I would suggest going with a text editor (I happen to use codelobster for the tabbed interface and for syntax highlighting in PHP) but you can use standard Notepad if your on a Windows PC. You can go to a site such as http://www.htmlgoodies.com/tutorials/getting_started/ for tutorials on HTML. Also includes sections for how to think of developing your site before you type your first HTML tag.

I haven't read through the older HTML tutorials as I used this site about 13 or so years ago when I took my first foray into HTML. They may have updated the older tutorials. But they go into HTML5 and server-side scripting so you can still learn the new methods.

But I would definitely work on learning HTML in conjunction with CSS. It's not very difficult and you can do searches for specific topics when you need help with something. It's how I taught myself CGI/Perl and then PHP. Although books help as well. But if you research "primers" and get the basics down then you can find help with specific problems or things you need to do. It's a good way to learn.

I would personally steer you away from site editor software as the code many output aren't the "cleanest" code and you can be limited to whatever they allow you to do.
