Good Questions: The Best Way to Remove Old Paint?

I just bought an apartment in the West Village. As you know, the walls and doors are covered in many layers of paint over the years. I want to remove the paint and start fresh with a new paint. I was hoping to do this on my own — how do I get it started and what do I need to know about possible lead paint? Thank you, Jeff
