What CMS to use?

I update my website mostly using Dreamweaver, I use custom templates and implement css classes to format my text in certain ways, I really enjoy using Dreamweaver and have no problems with it.

My problem is with organising the huge list of tutorials that I have on my website, I have them in page categories and where each page just lists them down. I would like to get some script to create an archive of my tutorial lists so that people could use advanced search methods to search for the titles, descriptions and user of the tutorial, all these detail which I would like to input in my archives.

Do you guys have any suggestions on what I should be using?

Drupal 5.1 is fantastic, it comes with an quite a learning curve but sounds like it would suit your purposes perfectly.

In addition to the main Drupal cms, use the cck module (content construction kit) and views module to display content that fits certain parameters.

Really stick with Drupal, it takes a bit of reading but is by far the best CMS I have used.

Also it is them able with css.

Thanks for your reply Paul, I'm taking a look at Drupal, but it does not look like what I'm looking for. I need a system to categories, sort, and search within my tutorial links. I have no intentions of using a CMS for my actual content anytime soon.

Some people have had success using Wordpress as a basic CMS. Or you may have in mind directory software. There are many links directory scripts out there.
