    First, I appologize for my lack of knowledge about WordPress.
    Second, I searched for what I thought was an easy issue and just couldn't find anything.

    When you select one of the catagories on the left, I would like it to display a list of post titles only.

    Thank You in advance for any help.

    The simplest way: create a Category Template, e.g. by saving your archive.php template file as category.php - and edit out everything you don't want there (like the_content etc.)

    Moshu,
    Thank You!!
    That worked great!

    Now, how do I make it show all the titles in that category, instead of just five?

    You probably have set your blog in admin > Options > Reading to show 5 posts. That applies to ALL your views (index, archives, catgeories, search etc.)

    To have different number of posts on different views - you need to use a plugin:
