Tutorial: anonymous web surfing, posting, and email

Most of the info here is fairly obvious to a sysadmin, but it's in a nice step-by-step format. Remember, you're never truly anonymous on the net. These steps are only useful to keep people without good record-keeping and without subpoena authority off your trail. That is, it may keep you from getting fired; it's not nearly so likely to keep you out of jail.
How do you make a truly anonymous post to a newsgroup or a BBS? How do you keep the Web sites you visit a secret? How do you send e-mail and ensure that its contents can't be read by someone who intercepts it? How do you chat anonymously?

We'll invoke our foil, Windows addict Harry Homeowner, and lay it out in terms the average user can profit from, though with hopes that even you power users might learn a thing or two in the process.
