    Is there a way to install LaTeX onto my computer so that I can use it when I am not online?

    Yes there is. If you go the MiKTeX page, download the most recent version (in this case, it would be version 2.7) [the link is here.]

    Once you've installed MiKTeX, then you need to install a LaTeX editor. The best free \text{\LaTeX} editor, in my opinion, would be TeXnic Center.

    It depends on the operating system you are using. For instance I'm using Eeebuntu (Ubuntu) on my netbook (eee pc) together with TeX Live 2008 and the editor Kile. If you are using Windows I agree with Chris. MiKTeX is a good choice and easy-to-use, though TeX Live is a very good alternative. TeXnicCenter would be my choice for Windows too.

    Perhaps have a look at Essential software for LaTeX, choose your operating system there and have a look at the distributions, editors and viewers listed.

    If you're fortunate enough to have a Macintosh, TeXShop is the best.
