Help: How do I rig up my spinnaker?

There's lots of info on general spinnaker set up online. Google or search here.

It's called a spinnaker pole, you'll need a topping lift, twings or foreguy/downhaul, a halyard, and two sheets.

You'll need turning blocks at the aft corners of the boat, usually small winches or you can use ratchet blocks. The tweakers or twings you'll need hardware for as well. Lots of little things, but it makes sailing downwind a lot more fun.
