I'm looking to develop a site in PHP using an MVC pattern. What is the best way to have functionality similar to Hibernate where I can convert my DB tables into objects.

I've tried using Symfony but couldn't get past the install.

Actually CodeIgniter is pretty awesome, I think I'll stick with it. I wish they had some more video tutorials but the model layer seems pretty seamless from what I saw.

Ya, I just did my first project with CI and really like it. I had thought about using cough along side CI, but this project did not really warrant it.
