How do you clean bike parts?

Hi,
I've just built a mountain bike from used parts at a bicycle co-op. The bike works, but I can really feel the gunk in the different moving parts. I want to take it apart and clean the parts, but I've never done that and don't know how. Can anyone recommend methods, tools, materials for cleaning these parts?
Thanks

Check in with the Bicycle Mechanics forum. Also, take a look at Sheldon Brown's website:
