For CCNA, using 2500 series routers, a router that support ISL, and Catalyst 1900 series switch with VLAN and trunking capabilities, and ISDN switch or ISDN simulator should be a starting point. However you might want to consider to use 2600 series router instead for all the routers and Catalyst 2950 for the switch instead since they are newer and longer lasting. Check out the following link for more info.
As for books, Lamme's and Ciscopress should be sufficient. FYI, there is a nice Ciscopress book that cover all commands necessary for the current CCNA exam preparations. Check out the following link for more info.
