Mambo CMS Update

I spent a lot of time working with the Mambo content management system on my Linux test server here, and yesterday installed it on a subdomain on my production hosting server.  The installation was not as simple as Mambo's install documentation would have you believe, requiring that I set a whole bunch of directory permissions and fiddle with a configuration file.  I wrote up a little article about my experiences, and will be posting it to the site.  I have things up and limping, but but I'm not pointing anybody to it until I iron out some of the more ovbious weirdnesses, two in particular:

I'm still not 100% certain that I'm going to convert this site to Mambo.  I will go to an online CMS at some point, but I want to be more comfortable with whatever system I choose before I do the conversion, as it's going to be a lot of work and I don't want to go through it all more than once.  I'll keep you posted.
