Thanks,

If you like alot of re-work and messiness, go with the etch-resist + ferric chloride method. I have tried it and it can work OK but in the end, I dont think it is worth the trouble. I prefer having a PCB house manufacture my boards - you get good quality. Some might argue that it is too expensive but, I have found that there are prototype board houses that can do 4 layer boards for $99. When you add up all the costs of some of the other methods, it is very comparable. Oh but you will have to use software to lay your board out. I use Eagle because there is a free version that lets you do 4 layer boards and it is easy to learn.
 
Thanks guys for the help. I remembered that I did not search this board after I posted this question. So I did a search on the board. I found some people talking and the Press and Peal thing sounded like a good way to go.

Again thanks for all the help you guys.
