Creating a static catalog

Hi,
I just bought the eCart 4 and I need some help to start.

I want to insert the eCart 4 into a website.
I made a search in the forum and looked at ecart_gsg.pdf file without result.
There are some information about the Database-driven shopping cart in ecart_gsg.pdf which is not my goal but I could not find any info about Creating a static catalog.
I need any tutorials,info,tips on how to insert eCart in my website.
Thank you in advance.

I work with:
iMac G5 ppc
Adobe Dreamweaver CS3 version 9.0 Build 3481

Look in your download area. There are files and guides that you can download to walk you through setting up a static site as well as dynamic.

That said, the only time I would recommend going with a static site is when you are absolutely sure that you will never need more than a few items. If there is any potential for growth at all, it much easier to go dynamic before you really need it.

Thanks for fast reply.
There will be at least 280 item in the website so as you mentioned I would go for database base driven option.
I will look at the download area.

Question regarding file management:
I have already a root folder set in Dreamweaver CS3 in my computer that content all my client's website. I tried to use the same folder for setting up the eCart4 to have everything in the same client website but I get error message.
Do I do something wrong?
Is it possible to create a new folder for eCart in the same folder that content all files of my client website?
Thank you.

Here's some articles to get you started:

How to setup a good folder structure for website design

How to set up a local testing server for Dreamweaver
144/

How to create a connection to a MySQL database
157/

Lot's of good stuff here:

I would start with the eCommerce database. Much easier than designing a database from scratch. Don't miss the Database Starter tutorial (couple of hours of video training)
