I'd definitely say go with Wordpress as everyone here is recommending.
They've got documentation on their site that will let you install it in a
manner of a few minutes.  There are tutorials for their templates, themes,
css editing, etc.  The cool thing is that you can essentially take your tags
and css from your existing site and copy them over, since it's just basic
tags surrounding php code (which reads the database, shows entries,
comments, etc).

I was able to put my site's template around it in a matter of about a half
hour once I figured out how it worked - there's some fixing up to do, but
it's simple.

Is your client using PHP/MySQL, or are you doing it for another platform?
