You start on the Apple iOS developer site, possibly by picking up a book or two, learning Objective-C, and buying a Mac if you don't already have one.

Yes, it will confuse you learning both at the same time: if you were more advanced at Java/programming in general, I don't think it would be a major issue. But it's even *more* important when using C-like languages to pay very close attention to what you're doing. And if your OO fundamentals are weak, the combination of C and Smalltalk isn't likely to go over very well.

TOD, i thought to combine iphone with my webmaster course that i am taking. may be i could offer a service that combines iphone with webdesign.

i wondered if that thing is possible

You're a ways off from being able to provide those services--best to focus on basics for now.

I believe that everything is possible in the world and that is why I am thinking that we can learn iPhone by ourself. We just have to knowledge of Jaba and other programming language so that we can know tabout its used functions and programming.

In case Jaba means Java then no, Java can't be used to do iOS programming.
A good C background is pretty good to have as Objective-C is a superset built on C language.

It is possible to learn iPhone development by yourself. You should have a good basic understanding of objective C and Cocoa. You can find many useful resources of iPhone development online.
