Drupal is a CMS that means Content Management System, so it can handles everything you need, it's just that it's another paradigm than creating HTML files. Everything is in the database, so you need to be confortable with that.. but you've got time as you said.. Drupal is a most acclamed open source script, double check it, myself I've overlooked it because the french translation isn't ready yet and I'm into french only sites at the moment (I know I'm stupid, french population online is so small compared to english population.. but at least french people are most often unknowlegdable in english, so you can serve them cold meals ;-) but I will look further into drupal in my future sites building, since I don't want to spend time anymore on building sites that can be easily build with Drupal. What I really like about drupal except for all the obvious things is that out of the box it doesn't display a copyright footer. Most other open source applications should take example from it. Bye.
