I bought one of those $39 Pfleuger 5wt outfits. It works ok, I've caught plenty of nice fish on it, and I still use it occasionally, but it's just not as nice to cast as my other rods and even they are on the low end of the scale ($79 and $149 for the rods only). If you really don't know whether you'll like flyfishing, then the cheap outfit will give you a chance to try it without dropping a lot of cash. If you do get one of those combos with everything included you may want to buy a better fly line. The one that came with my outfit was completely useless.

Have fun!
