Looking for some help with making a power adapter to convert power from 110V mains to 9v DC. Any suggestions on a circuit, or a site to use as a resource?

Google search wil reward many returns, But wouldnt it be easyer just to use a wall wart (wall adapter)?. Or are you just wanting to build one for fun :) ?

Linear regulator, or a switching regulator?

yes that is a big difference, ie lump of metal with wire wrapped around it and large, or tiny, efficient and more complicated

This looks right - what do you guys think

looks like that will work- dont forget the large heat sink :)

Why an LM317 & all the parts?
Go with a 7809 part and 2 capacitors instead.

I agree use a 7809, but also a transformer with a 12v secondary to reduce the size of the heatsink.
