This won't be a step by step, but I'll try to give a few pointers. Make sure the drop outs are not the verticle ones you'd see on a modern road bike. You need to be able to adjust chain tension. As stated before, your best bet would be to get a new rear wheel that is set up for fixie. I like the flip/flop hubs, because you can have a single speed (free-wheel) and a fixie all in the same bike. This allows you to essentially have two bikes in one. Depending on your terrain and sanity, you may want to consider at least one brake if not two. Other than that all I can think of is a strong fixie/singlespeed chain and chain ring. The chain rings meant for multi-geared bikes have notches designed into them that are meant to drop the chain when the derailuer beckons. A chain ring ready to drop the chain is not a very desirable feature on a fixie or singlespeed. Hope that helped.
