Well, you need some burning software if it doesn't come with your Plextor. Adaptec CD Creator 4 ($69 here with proof of owning competitive product [Plextor's?]: http://roxio.sfi0.com/index.cgi/rxfh-r-buy-001) or Nero are popular. Plextor does come with disc duplicating software.

As for recordable CD's, get cheap ones rated for 12x speed, or 8x if you feel lucky. You can get spools of 50 for $10-15. I don't really care about brand, but get a brand name, not a house brand.

I have used Neato for labeling and there is at least one other brand. It works ok.

I have the Plextor box sitting right next to me now. It comes with:

CD-RW Drive
Adaptec DirectCD (for CD-RW discs)
PlextorManager 2000
CD-R disc
CD-RW disc

PlextorManager2000 is a suite that comes with:

MVP2000: music/video player
Audio Capture 2000: rips audio into WAV or WMA
AudioFS: lets you manipulate WAV files
DiscDupe2000: Duplicates audio, data, video CDs
Drive Properties: drive utilities

Like X suggested, you should get EZ-CD Creator.
