The knowledge base had a ton of info on how to do what with what. Start there, its a lot of reading but it can defiantly get you started.

I don't know what one craig said, it may have been http://www.simmerspaintshop.com, it has huge amounts of good resources for skinning.

 

EDIT: Here's a free download of Photoshop CS2:

Also, I will tell you that unless you have a lot of experience in 3d modeling, that may not be the best way to start modding in this series.

 

But like everyone else has said, hit the Knowledge Base FIRST!

Back to the point. with WHAT thing i should start? (skinning,modeling,etc.

 

I don't see how any of us here can answer that question for you. We don't know what your skill set is, or even more importantly, what your interests are. If whatever you decide on isn't something you enjoy doing, you probably won't continue to work on it for very long.

 

Play the game, read through the knowledge base, extract some .ini files and look through them, and find something that you think you'll enjoy working.

 

We can't rank every possibility by order of difficulty.
