Well Bill now you are talking about my speciality! My primary business is Virtual Tours and I shoot 360 Panoramas basically everyday.

Here is what I use:

Tripod: Bogen 3021BPro with Bogen 303QTVR Head
Camera: Canon EOS Rebel XT
Lens: Canon 10-22 f3.5 @14MM
Flash: Canon 550EX With Gary Fong Lightsphere Cloud

I shoot a series of 12 Stills at the designated stop points on the QTVR head then I process the raw files to usable .jpegs after running them through HDRI software (If need be) and stitch them together using's 3D Photobuilder Pro software. The thing I like about A3D's program is that it adjusts automatically for exposere and contrast across all images to give a reasonable image at the end of the processing. Once I have expoerted the image I do final touch ups in photoshop. You can see many examples on my index Website or here is one:

Hope this helps!
