Not sure how to accomplish...

I know what I want to do, but not sure how to accomplish it. I'm a Super Suite owner so I imagine I have some, if not all of the right tools to get it done. Just not sure about the right combination.

I'd like to build a client's ‘News Articles’ page that will show a predetermined amount of excerpts (headline and a few lines from article) that will link to the full article on another page. I'd also like navigable first page, previous, next, and last page buttons to get to additional pages of excerpts. To me, this is very similar to the construction of the ‘results.php’ page that I've create in the past using the Yahoo Search for BOSS extension.

On top of that, the client would also like it tied into a CMS so they could add articles at will. I anticipate employing PowerCMS Builder because I'm using it for other areas of the site.

So, I'm not asking to take up anyone's time and map out the entire process, but just a starting point or some direction to get going and what tools from the Super Suite would be beneficial in my case. My first thoughts were to break down the code that Search for Boss uses with repeating regions and try to apply it to my situation. Then I was wondering if Data Assist would help. As for the CMS, I'm not sure if I should worry about that now or after I get the initial functionality working that I'm trying to accomplish.

I know I could always google search the topic, but I figured I'd start here since I'm using WA tools.

Thanks to anyone for some insight.
