    if you have zero knowledge about setting up a site, you still can DIY, but will take you sometime to figure out how to integrate everything together, it can be few days, few weeks or few months, all depends on how many hours of effort you want to put into it.

    I would suggest you to try out blogspot and play around with the gadget and functions it offer.

    If you have zero knowledge and want to create a website using built in templates, look for web hosting sites that use "Site Builder". Great tool and very easy to use. There are companies that will charge you $5K for building a site using that tool!!!

    If you go the way of learning HTML and presumably CSS. It is a much bigger pain in the arse due to web browsers conforming to different rules. That is it will take some time to understand the hacks you will need to implement to ensure a uniformity in the different versions of IE (would start from IE 6 onwards), FireFox, Safari and Opera. These being the popular browsers.

    I code as much as possible in CSS before using scripts to get around other problems.

    I guess Macromedia Dreamweaver should fit the bill.. dat's IF you are not a hand coding advocate. It's definitely capable w both front and backend development. There's still a learning curve tho. Ebay's an alternative option you might wanna consider.

    Any vector proggie will be fine w rgds to the logo.

    1. Joomla
    2. DIY, very simple, forum wise, get SMF... since free.
    3. OScommerce. shopping cart system
    4. as usual, PS or equivalent...

    webhost hot = cheap = slow... u want? i'd rather get reliability over everything for commercial sites.

    anyway, you seem extremely diversed. just do 1 at a time, i think you should get joomla 1st, then test out its feature, then use it as a eCart. then slowly move on to forum and a full fledge ecommerce system.
