If this is the very first computer you've designed and built by hand, do it on a big chunk of protoboard as a single-board computer. Perhaps even hold off on floppy disk support and whatnot and just wire up a "trainer" type board: CPU, ROM, some quantity of ram, serial port, parallel port, and that's it. You'll learn a lot that will prepare you to learn a lot more when you go to do a full-featured system!

   Being that Joe wants to stay in the ~1997 timeframe, Steve Ciarcia's 
"Build Your Own Z80 Computer" book would be a very good place to start.
