you can find cheese cloth at a grocery store. look in the cooking utensil area if they have one. alternatively you could use a cotton tee to strain. don't know about live yogurt seeds. i just used store bought organic yogurt(no sugar added, full fat). if making kefir, you can go to a health food store or order the 'grains' online. i don't eat dairy anymore, but i had a lot of fun makin' all that stuff when i did

I usually get mine at Walmart in the fabric department. It used to be really, really cheap but like everything else, the price has gone up. The Walmart stuff is really gauzy and I use four layers to drain my Greek yogurt. You can wash it but it shrinks up and crinkles so much it's hardly worth the trouble. I've been meaning to check out some cheese-making vendors to try for some re-useable cloth.
The trouble with some of these other suggestions are
#1: Lint. I assume you don't want lint in your yogurt.
#2: They're not porous enough and it would take absolutely forever to drain.
Amazon to the rescue. They have cheesecloth and cheesecloth bags.
Edited to add: I just noticed that this discussion started in June 2010. I sure hope David has found his cheesecloth by now.
