Been wanting to make cheese and when I get to the part about calf stomach linings for the rennet I back away. Are there other methods?

Google for vegetable rennet. But consider, even marshmallows, gelatin etc. Are made from similar animal products (Or which you really don't want to hear the details).
I don't think all but the most 'artisan' cheese makers create their own rennet.
It's available in tablet form from suppliers for the home cheese maker.

There's a company called Urban Cheesecraft that puts out cheese making kits that use vegetarian rennet. http://www.artfire.com...
Or try one of these, where you wouldn't have to order a whole cheesemaking kit:
