Hi Bradbury,
Depends on how many wordpress sites you are planning on using with the hosting.
<Edit #1 2010-AUG-29 0123MST>
To answer your specific questions,one wordpress self hosted site will require:
</Edit #1>

1 x mysql database
1 x ftp account
and needs to be linux based

<Edit #2 2010-AUG-29 0123MST>
Word press requirements
* PHP 4.3 or greater
* MySQL 4.1.2 or greater
* The mod_rewrite Apache module
Link to wordpress.org page on requirements
http://wordpress.org/about/requirements/
</Edit #2>

You can also see Flynn's post on web hosting:
http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?t=454

And here is the link to wordpress.org document on web hosting
http://wordpress.org/hosting/

If you are undecided or would like some reviews. I suggest reading some at http://www.webhostingjury.com/
(That is where I found my host)

Hope this information helps!
- Chevyman

P.S. You can P.M. or IM me if you need more assistance finding a host.

just a quick note to the previous post
1) you can have many domains in the same host account - they just have to be in different directories and the dsn has to be pointed to that directory.
2) you only need (1) ftp account this way - you can access all your copies of wordpress because they are in different folders on the same host.
3) technically, you can have multiple wordpress sites using the same database - they all have to have different prefixes (set in wp-config.php) - however...if something goes wrong with one, say it is hacked, then the others are affected also, so I recommend one (1) db per site.
