360 degree view of 15'X20' office

I'm pretty sure I can do the camera work for a 360 degree view of a room, but I'm wondering what kind of software/skills I'll need to make it happen in either flash or quick time. I've seen those quicktime videos where you can drag a 360 view to any spot in the room, but I don't know how to do that. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

~Nick

I typically shoot stills using a pano rig and create the QTVR with RealViz Stitcher:

it is called panoramic view.
basically it is a jpeg picture, played by a special software (quicktime, java...)
there are several way to do it, the simpler, the more expensive.
you need a special lense (180 deg fisheye), take 2 or 3 pictures with a special tripod head), assemble with special software.
it is very easy but really expensive.

the hard way but cheap.
you take a videocamera or digital camera, make a lot of pictures (every 15 deg for example), stitch with special program.
lots of work, nice results.

try google with panorama, stitch.
