For anyone looking to enter the discipline you will need a good background within computer science and understand system architecture as well as some knowledge of forensic science + law enforcement principles.
Computer forensic uses alot of principles from forensic science and law enforcement procedures and follows strict chain of custody/integrity guidelines. Anyone looking to go into the field will also need some big finances behind them as the equipment and software isn't cheap.
I've been told it is possible to setup your own forensic lab but you'll need at least 5k minimun for a basic kit and thats without the software licences which expire every year!...Its expensive business but very rewarding and fun when you get a chance to investigate!.. However anyone looking to have a dabble can download AccessDatas FTK Imager which is a free powerful program that only gives you a taster for the field! Link to FTK Imager download
Anyone interested theres a nice wiki found here Forensic Wiki
Some other tips on computer forensics for anyone interested. The UK tend to use AccessDatas FTK program, while state side Encase is implemented. There are a host of open source tools out there as well so check the forensic wiki link and you can find some free open source tools to play around with. Legal wise the UK uses the ACPO guidelines a quick google search will bring them up for you!...If you do download FTK imager a quick google search for FTK imager image scenarios or Forensic scenario images will bring up some nice examples for you to play around with...
Hope that helps
