Yeah, I wish it were that simple, I'd already be done with it. One of 
the pages is no problem. The other one, the main/home page of the site 
grabs two pieces of info from the3rd parties MSSQL server and inserts it 
into the template and a session cookie. Since ASP and php do not share 
session info, I have to find, or create, something to pass it across.

Yes, it looks like a god starting point, but our abstraction layer does 
not yet support MSSQL (3rd parties db server)

Thank you for the book pointer, I had not seen it before. Now I'm going 
to spend  some money.
