How Difficult is Refrigerator Water Line Hook-Up

Hi,

How difficult is it to install a Refrigerator Water
Line Hook-Up? We're replacing our old fridge with a
newer model and we're really interested in the through-
the-door ice makers/drinking water features that the
newer fridges have. Unfortunately, I don't have a
water line running to the fridge right now. I have
replaced sinks, faucets, and toilets so I do have a
knowledge of plumbing. It seems to me that it should be
fairly simple to install a refrigerator water line
(i.e., drill a couple of holes through cabinets, run
pipe from fridge to cold water pipe under sink, and
hook everything up). Yes? No? What sort of connection
do I have to make on the cold water pipe under the
sink? Are there kits available that include everything
necessary to do this? Any advice would be greatly
appreciated. Thanks.
