Good find Tom,

Regarding Install and ideas: I've been working with 4images recently and was
quite impressed with the install
- Config.php has about 4 parameters: Only need to change the database
connection info

- It auto detects the directory and I have been able move the application
after installing just fine
- Web-based install to create tables and then online config
- Application settings are in a table
- Has logic to handle register_globals and magic_quotes being on or off
