Piece of cake with the right tools. You need a chain whip and the right adapter fitting for your cassette (Shimano vs Camp.) plus an open end wrench. As I remeber the total cost between them was around $15 at Supergo.

I just treated myself to the book "Zinn and the Art of Road Bike Maintenence", neat book, nice BIG drawings of stuff, imparts a lot of info with a minimum of fuss :-)

The Park Tool webpage on Removing and Installing Rear Cogs is also pretty good.

Installing does require a chain whip. The direction you turn the locknut is the same as the drive direction. You may want to use a chain whip on a freewheel just to tighten it down a bit.
