re: My boss wants to create a web site up and has asked me which software
would work best ...

Well, your site's users are going to use browser software to view what you
create, and you should have that too so you can test your pages. If your
site is strictly internal to your company (an Intranet) you may get by with
just your firm's standardized browser. If your pages will be viewed anywhere
on the WWW, you should have at least the top three browsers and use them all
to test your pages. Internet Explorer, Netscape, Opera. It may be good to
have some recently superceded versions of each as well as the current
versions. If your site is just internal, recommend (much as it pains me)
Internet Explorer. It's 85% of the market and consequently the path of
least resistance.

When you set up your server you are buying both hardware and software. You
may not need it at first, but eventually you may wish to do database work
with your Web site. Your server can be Windows or Unix based, for example.
Evaluate each potential candidate so that you understand what you'll get
when you purchase it adn what you'll have to learn to do data capture. This
is a consideration even if you "rent."

No matter which software you eventually settle on for creation of pages, be
advised that you will eventually need to understand how to create raw html.

The Web is basically a visual medium, and the pages you create should be
designed for viewing first, printing second. If printing is important,
consider also purchasing Adobe Acrobat for creation of nicely printable
pages. It's a "standard" for sure.
