Can someone recommend a manual that can help
me with this? I have "Dummies" and the CS3 Bible
but neither one addresses this issue very much...
It's my first website...ambitious I know...but hey...I
love a good challenge!

how far along are you? i would suggest using a local server and even a different site to get the hang of it.
Do you know what type database you want of which serverside tech you want to use? my advice would be Mysql and php as you will get more help here at least if needed

yes...I've set up Wamp on my computer...I'm familiar
with the Sql Connection protocol...I'm trying to design
the database at this point...then I'll set up the connection.
then I'll do the forms for the members registration...it seems
like the logical progression...

to add...designing the database (the tables for
it is where I need help...do I create dynamic
pages or just make the data they enter be
dynamic...there will be search queries by members
to find tennis partners...

all info should be in the data base, or links to images if there are any. you may benefit from downloading a good database manager like EMS http://www.sqlmanager.net/products/mysql/manager/
or heidi http://www.heidisql.com/ both free and makes database creation and management much easier
