How does house arrest work? (more inside)

Martha Stewart's sentencing includes five months of 'home confinement.'
How is that handled in the U.S.? How much does it vary from state to state? Is she literally forbidden from setting foot from the house? Is it, then, reserved for people rich enough to comfortably have everything delivered? Or are certain reasonable errands permitted, and how is that defined?
