thanks for the response, Karl. I actually do have shell access because I 
host my domains on a VPS. However, I am only just now taking my very 
first Linux/bash baby steps, definitely a long way from being ready to 
take on the type of operation you describe. I guess I was looking for 
something as easy to administer (and as easy to customize the UI, as 
well) as phpBB (the only thing I've had the nerve to "install" thus far, 
and it certainly did not involve compiling)

Being a db application dev, tho' (strictly 4GL), if I end up making 
something nice I'll share back to the list.
