WILL NOT START, CLICKING SOUND WHEN IGN

1999 Toyota 4Runner

There is no subject for this. It is a mechanical issue, but may not involve the engine.

I cannot start the engine. When I turn the key I get a clicking sound. I know the battery is good--the lights, radio, windows work. Could it be the ignition switch? Starter motor? Solenoid? If the switch, how much should this cost, starter motor cost, solenoid cost? I have never even changed the oil in a car, should I get the idiot book an attempt a repair on my own? Or, Can you recommend a reliable, fairly priced Toyota mechanic in the [California] San Fernando Valley area, Or should I just surrender to the dealer?
