guest  book. How quaint and last millenium. And what a nice
opportunity for spammers! But regardless, I suppose using a discussion
forum list with a "guest book" topic might work.

If you use a blog template there is a Comments list included. It could
be used for this. To keep the spammers out just make sure your posts
require approval. I do that on my public facing blog and it works
great. You could do the same with a discussion list.

I actually like the blog idea better than my discussion list one
because it offers a better option for having a "What do you think?
Please sign my guestbook." blog post as an introduction to the
comments. All these options really beg for a good custom masterpage to
change the look and feel of the existing template from a blog or
discussion list or whatever into a guestbook. But this is really what
I love about sharepoint in that there are plenty of options out of the
box to make this work!

Remember the customer is always right regardless of we think. You
could write an application and display it in a page viewer web part.

Why not just create  a custom list with custom fields for comments?

Users can just go and post list items to the list.

Or a survey/discussion forum would work as well

Create one of each possibility, show them to your client and leave the
decision to them.

Thanks for the reply. I was asking how to create  it in MOSS 2003 and not 2007. I
guess MOSS 2003 does not have Blog template Please let me know if it does ?.I
have created a custom list in MOSS 2003 like Bob suggested.

There is no such product as MOSS 2003, which is probably the source of
the confusion. Are you talking about SPS 2003 or WSS 2.0?
