Joomla Question and Answer component

Hi all,

I am looking for a Question and Answer Joomla component/module.
There are some Yahoo Anser clones for Joomla but they're all commercial and cost quite some money.

I am looking for a free alternative.

It's simple:
All registered users should be able to ask a question; the admin or other users can answer.
I am not looking for a forum; just a simple Q&A system.

I am using Joomla 1.5.23 (not planning to update to 1.6 anytime soon).

Thank you

* ACL Based Rights

have you considered an faq component?

Medi-QnA is a Joomla! 1.5 native component developed for medical websites but can be used on any site that wants to offer educational content in question and answer format.

It DOES NOT record user scores, grades or allow user interaction in this way. This is a very simple component which I personally think is its strong point. It's easy to install and configure but that ease of use means it has NO sophisticated features like grading systems etc.

Examples: A lawyer who specialises in criminal cases may wish to 'brush up' on property law. A doctor specialising in radio therapy may wish to re-fresh on clinical techniques.

already checked all of them.
In these extensions you can only submit questions in the back-end.
So my users won't be able to submit questions themselves.
