Looking to move to the UK...

Hi all!

I'm an American, my wife is British and we're looking to move to the U.K. next year, hopefully around the Manchester/North West area. I'm trying to get an idea about prices, cost of living, what kind of salary I could expect (I work in I.T... I'm a UNIX Systems Administrator). I already can have rights of residency, so getting work shouldn't be a problem. Is it OK to ask a prospective employer to pay moving costs? I just don't know where to begin and I'm very bewildered. If anyone has any ideas, I would love to hear them!
