Welcome to Librarium Online!
Well, the other day, I got a squad of Fire Warriors. Then, I ordered those Pathfinder guys. I got 1 pack of rail rifles, 1 pack reguler, and 1 of the leaders(Sha-sho or sumtin) What else do I need??
Another FW squad and an HQ choice. Then your force slots are filled, so you can build off that.
Welcome to Bucketheadland
What buckethead said, and the Codex.
Also, your Pathfinders are required to take a Devilfish transport when you field them, so that should be on your list as well.
The HQ choice can either be a Crisis Battlesuit kitted out as a Shas'O or Shas'el, or an Ethereal. If you intend to start playing small games right away, get the Crisis Suit. It will be of more immediate benefit than the aptly-named Ethereal.
Other'n that, feel free to look around here for tactics and list composition advice, and perhaps check out the http://groups.msn.com/MechanizedTauTactica/ for an excellent (and fun!) alternative to the "standard" (also called Integrated or Static) Tau army list.

Definately get a devilfish for teh pathfinders. Then more fire warriors.
A new codex is coming out "soon," probably by January. So, you may want to wait to get the Codex until the new on comes out.
