On a linux server I'd like to have a file containting data about different trucks (brand:model:year:price:details) and via a web page I'd like users to be able to choose from a set of check boxes or drop down lists the parameters they'd like to search for (a ford, 1997, $20,000 - $25,000) and all the info about the truck extracted and displayed on a page with the trucks picture. Super confusing to me but I'd love all the help I can get.  I have no idea about CGI and I'm not even sure if this is the best method but it seemes appropriate to me.  :)  I get the feeling that this answer is going to contain a huge script so if anyone one who has an answer could upload it to a site so I can demo it.....it would be much appreciated (if it's any easier)
