Milkshape 3D is a good program to start with. However, the unregistered version doesn't allow you to save your work. Besides MilkShape 3D, you have a wide range of choices (3D Studio Max, Light Wave 3D, Maya, etcetera). I personally liked using 3D Studio Max when I tried my hand at modeling.

Unfortunately, there aren't too many free modeling programs out there. Milkshape 3D would be the cheapest to buy.

Student (non-commercial) licences are much cheaper.
(I hope nobody starts ranting about how the makers of these programs suck because they want too much money for their tools)

Gmax is no longer supported by AutoDesk, however you can still download it from this site: http://www.turbosquid.com/gmax

However, I don't think you can save in any other format than ".gmax" or something similar.

you can export from Gmax into .3ds or .OBJ (not sure on the second one), so you can definately use it for modding other things, if you know what you're doing.

GMAX OR BLENDER!!

NOT MILKSHAPE! PLEASE!! Although milkshape is easy to pick up, it lures you into it's easy interface. Once you start making models, you will find how annoying some of the tools are, that's why I tried to switch modeling programs. When I started using GMAX, it was so hard because Milkshape had made everything seem so easy. But once I got use to GMAX, modeling became a lot let frustrating.

Do yourself a favor, go with GMAX or Blender :p

Blender, ZModler, Wings3D, Silo, Anim8tor

there are plenty of free Modeling programms. Would suggest to use Wings3D or Blender, i heard they are quite nice.

Silo , dunno if its still open beta or some, but it only costs 100$ ? dont remember, not alot compared to other progs. Silo Is mainly for Highpoly shaping and stuff. Really lovly.

Milkshape, could be a chancefor you, gmax aswell. But it depends with what you start, really. There is nothing easier to learn. Aslong you are able to learn the basic you are actually able to work on any Application, just you nee to know the hotkeys.

Reck: with gmax you have less abilities to export something or other things. I bet he wants to try how to model, texture and probably render nice pics and export it to something or to share it with people. Let him decide. It was your time, but maybe not his ;P
