I have a W2K server and I have a webpage hosted on it, it is for My LAN only.
only parts of it are for external network access.

What I would like to create or find,  I want to have web pages, (one for each worker I have) and on that web page,
would be 'inputs' for the tasks they are working on. and check boxes for completion. and for me, the administrator,
the ability to add tasks to their list.

is there a way to do this ?
what do I need to research ?
where should I go?

I know nothing now, but I am on my way.... Learning as I go.
I have macromedia dreamweaver 2004 mx and frontpage 2000

how does the basic concept work of the whole idea ?
"does someone log on to their web page and see their tasks listed out, and they just finished one of their tasks and they
click the check box next to it that shows they finished it and they type in any notes that might go with it, and when they hit
submint it sends their data thru a CGI script ? and it dumps it into an Excell spreadsheet ?"
or is that not right????

It would help me to understand the "Modules" or components and what they do to complete the process I described.
Keep in mind., Ive never done anything like this before,
but Ill be able to digest medium to medium/advanced stuff....

Certainly quite doable, but it all depends on what technologies you want to use.

It could be done with ASP/VB, PHP, Perl, backend database, Java etc.

On my site, I use a PHP todo list which may or may not suit your needs.

It may not be the best choice for a Windows server, although there's no reason why it shouldn't run.

You will need to have PHP and MySql installed to run it.

I am going to need help from someone who knows about mysql on windows machines.

I am stuck at (where I think I am at)  creating a database entry for the php todolist.
so far, ive put the todolist files inside of a subfolder of my webpage folder,
on my main webpage, I made a link pointing to the index.php and I configured iis for .php
I went and downloaded php from the internet and made a folder for(C:\php) it and put php.exe in it along with all the other install files.

if i go to another machine and go to my main html page, and click the link for the index.php, it asks me for a username and password.
but I dont know what it is, and I dont know how to add new ones.....
............ I guess I add new ones to the mysql database somehow.. ? does that sound right ?

im trying....

From the README

- Login as the admin user, and set up whatever users you need. A "test"-user
  with password "test" is also created as example by the setup sql script.
- with the admin-user you can also create projects and assign members to them.
  Every newly created user is automatically member of project '1' which is
  named - guess it - 'default'. The default-project shouldn't be deleted.
- edit the "include/config.php"-file to fit your needs.
- Change the password for user "admin"! (Default password is "admin"....), or
  give a new user admin rights and delete the "admin" user. An admin-user is
  quite the same as a normal user but has access to the administration-forms.
  (You can have more than one user with admin-rights)
