hi there
i just want to ask you .. few questions?
what have you planned for your database i mean who are your users??
>>is it going to be put on web / CD 
if you are going for web.. the front end will be either html / java script/ vb script /cgi script...
and the back end will be oracle /MySQL/flat files any database as such will do..
but in your case i think you will need some RDBMS as you can split up data and help the user to find what he wants easily..

to start with i feel you identify your fields, then design your tables and relation betwen them ..once you identify to what extent you are going to put your data then your database designing will harldly take time .. and data is very imp...

if you have any more queries you can get back to my personal email..balajior at rediffmail.com
