Bumming around South America on a budget?

Travelling around South America for a year on a low budget -- give me the run down of how one prepares for that kind of thing and how much money you should realistically budget?
Let's just assume staying at non-scary hostels, and just kind of bouncing around central and south america going to beaches, and maybe some time in larger cities, too... A friend of mine was saying he did it for 2 years on $3k-- does that sound realistic? Also, how does the visa thing work when you're just bumming around like that? Do you need to get shots before going? Is there like a checklist somewhere for someone who wanted to get ready to do something like this? How hard is this to do when you don't know Spanish?
