Dear Gurus,

If I am not providing some necessary information please correct me and let me know.  I am a newbie to drupal.  I am using Drupal 5.19 (I downgraded from drupal 6 because it didn't seem to have the modules I needed).

I am trying to create a site that lists events and their time, location information on a google map (please note:  some events may have multiple locations and some locations may have multiple events).   I got the following modules installed and working correctly: GMap, Location, Calendar, Event.  I now have a new content type called "event" which allows me to enter start and end date,  type in and address and also put a pin on a google map.  There is an overall map which shows all the events I have entered.

My problem is, as I am creating more events I am realizing that many events share the same address and each time I create a new event it is adding another marker to the same location on the map.  I would like to have just one marker per location and preferably separate locations from all other content type so a location is not tied to an event.
The behavior I would like to have is,  when someone creates a new event, they would see a drop down list of locations that have been created; and they would pick one or more.  

Is this an easy thing to do?  Do I need a different module or could I do it with what I have?
 I don't want to have to create my own module since I am so new to this.

Thanks,

I had to do some self tutoring to figure out how to create CCK fields but it worked.  Thanks.  Not sure why D6 is better than D5 for this.
