@tvleavitt: It is a simple html form with php validation, nothing fancy. What was the error that you were receiving? Do you have register_globals turned on?
@buffy: Thats another strange error. Which directory are you changing the permissions on? You could rename the path in brvars.php and create a fresh directory. I have a feeling there is a configuration problem there somewhere. If you are confused about some of the readme instructions, email me or post on here and I will try to help.
