I've tried to use several type of forums and guest books on my web site, but the instructions and other various tutorials don't quite explain exactly what to do... I've done a lot of experimenting and still cant figure it out...
i tried to:

-post information to a database/web page.( <img src=" title="" src="graemlins/pissed.gif" /> no luck <img src=" title="" src="graemlins/pissed.gif" /> )
-send info to E-Mail (Successful)
-add password and user name to
guest book/forum ( <img src=" title="" src="graemlins/pissed.gif" /> no luck <img src=" title="" src="graemlins/pissed.gif" /> )

if anyone can post any in-depth tutorials and/or give suggestions that would be great

Well, for some nice CGI tutorials and documentation you could go to the CGI Resource Index .

Have you thought about using php ? IMO it's easyer to learn and use.

Just learn perl if you want to know CGI. That's all it is the CGI is just created from the input/output of the perl program

The actual mechanics of CGI is the passing of data to a program's STDIN (POST) and/or setting various environment variables (GET) then taking the program's STDOUT data and send it to the user. Perl does this. It also has the advantage of reading .pl files to determine exactly how you want the request to be handled. Anybody with this working knowledge of how CGI works can write a program in ASM, or C, or whatever you want to be executed by HTTP requests.

Not saying sinetific was wrong. Just wanted to clarify things for those who are interested.
