that's a really cool bike ('specially for free) but i'd turn it into a 1/6, not a ss. getting the gearing right is going to suck.
and yeah, sheldon is a good resource for this... i don't think the freehub/freewheel question is your biggest problem. i think you may have vertical dropouts and if you're going to need a tensioner, just run it 1 by 6.
you don't need a new crankset if you have a demel:evilgril:
if you follow the advice of most people on here you'll end up with this:
which is cool, but it's not as cool as this:
which is essentially what you could have if you spend your money on a seven dollar can of degreaser instead of a thirty dollar tensioner and thirty dollar freewheel and on and on and on.
which saves you money to spend on things that will make that bike way better and more enjoyable, like a wtb saddle and some nice riser bars, maybe a suspension fork.
if you are looking for something like the bianchi i linked to above, fine... but it's kind of a silly thing to invest in because you got that bike for free.
