We have an ecommerce site and we want to add "customer rating" system. This is where customers rate a product and for example give it 5 stars or 1 star. Then it's dsplayed below each product...

I'm guessing I need a table to hold the rating, customer comments, datetime comment was entered, the product that was rated. Then code needs to average the stars...

But how about the stars...is this done with AJAX??

The star ratings are made with javascript mouseovers.  You would generally use a hidden field to store the current value of your "star meter" so it's submitted with the form.  Here's a couple already made meters (found by googling "javascript rating system":
