    well first you have to decide what platform you will be using and what language.

    Most likely you will use some linux based (windows will also work but I would not recommend) Apache Webserver along with a MySql installation. In order to communicate between your form (website) and your MySql Database you might use PHP as a scripting language.
    You could also consider using a Content Management System (such as ) which does a lot of the programming for you already.

    Since I do not know anything about your programming skills and also your choices above yet its hard to help you any further though.

    Well basically - I want to run an internal website using IIS, and have SQL Server 2005 installed.

    All I want is a page displaying a List of Toners and their relevant quantities and be able to add / subtract 1.
    Ideally it would be nice to have a form that you could put the location in (room) and select remove or something.

    My Programming skills are limited

    Can you possibly help
