[texhax] Hebrew TeX

I'm new to TeX and have a few questions about getting Hebrew to work.

I've been doing research/testing and these are the things I need to work. I'd 
appreciate help to find out what is the easiest way to get a TeX system that 
supports all of these.

1) Hebrew support (right to left, correct pagination, etc.)
2) Unicode/UTF-8
3) True Type Fonts (I would like to use SIL's Ezra unicode Hebrew font,
    but am open to other good, free unicode fonts)
4) Memoir class (I need paragraph footnotes)

I currently have teTeX 3.0 which came with my Slackware 10.2 distribution. 
However, I don't believe babel in it has Hebrew support, and I can't seem to 
get Hebrew support added...

I'm considering trying the TeX Live DVD. I've been researching a lot and have 
been barking up a lot of wrong trees. Could anyone give me some pointers about 
what would be the easiest way to do this.

What classes? or packages? I need and how to install them if needed and how to 
include them in the .tex file would also be great. Thank you so much.


P.S. Sorry if this is a dup, I wasn't subscribed to the list, so I don't think 
it went through.
