Mike, I'm going to follow Josh's advice too. ;-) I didn't realize a PHP/PGSQL book existed... Not sure how I missed it.
Anyway, if you can install PGSQL on your WinXP box, setting up a database is a piece of cake. :-)
When you get around to installing the goodiers, shoot me an e-mail and I'll give you some tips I learned the *hard* way.
My latest problem is trying to get dbg (debugger) to work with maguma's php coder's IDE. ugggh!
I am getting close to actually being able to program in PHP, though :-)

Thanks for your response.
I'm taking your advice.
I have sampled the Douglas book and liked what I saw, so I just ordered it.
I'm thinking I should see if I'm even able to learn how to build and
use a database, then if I'm successful with postgresql, I'll worry
about building a web interface for it.
Thanks again for the input and guidance.
