How do I go about adding a comment form

I would like to add an "Ask a question" forum section on a website of mine. I do not want a complex forum - just a form where people would enter their name, subject and question and then I would answer it. Of course I want all this to happen online - kind of like Yahoo Answers.

I need some directions on how to do this. Probably I would need a script. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Mike,

Site is hosted on a Linux server.
I'm not a programmer so there's no question about a language of choice. My host supports PHP language and MYSQL databases.

I should add that I do not need a comment form within an existing page, but a form that would let my visitors create new pages when asking questions.

After doing some more research I've found that I need a FAQ/knowledge base script. Found a few on HotScripts. Suggestions are very welcome for a SE friendly such software that would be easy to integrate into my website.

Be sure to cloak it with javascript, keeps the spam bots out... ;-)
