When is it appropriate to ask someone out?

I don't know how to date, because when I was younger I never had to. I'm not sure how it worked out any more, but things just seemed to happen until i was 20 or so, and then things got harder, possibly simply because of the decline in popularity of AIM in my age group. After a slump, it's become apparent that since clubs (both the dancing and the common interest variety) don't appeal to me and I tend to be very serious and focused in class-type situations I'm gonna have to learn to date.
So when and who is it appropriate to ask? Long time medium-level friends? Acquaintances? Employees at establishments you frequent? Upon meeting someone at a party? Randomly on the street?
What's the difference between asking on a date and asking for a number? I've never actually witnessed any of these things happening, but I know it must. A lifetime of Seinfeld is not adequate socialization for this!
