I've used PHP Questionnaire a few times and love it.  The first time it took
me all of 15 minutes to install, another 15 minutes to set up my survey and
another 30 minutes to create a custom template.  Base price is $200 but it's
worth it, and you get a yr of free upgrades and support.  Hope this helps
you as it really helped me!  (I can even export results into nicely
formatted Excel files, which my client loves.)  http://www.chumpsoft.com
