What tools do I need to put a cassette on a wheel?

I have most work done at LBS but it is time for me to start doing my own work. I am buying a PowerTap 2.4 with wheel and plan to put the cassette on the wheel myself. BUt have no idea what tools are needed.

Guess I will be buying some tools

To remove it, you'll need a chain whip to hold the cassette in place and the correct cassette lockring tool for your cassette. Here's the Shimano version. To install it, you'll only use the lockring tool.

Park's repair pages have some good information
