Does anyone have any tutorials or any easy way to create an employee directory or employe profiiles page?
Something similar to this:
which wouldn't require a lot of scripting or difficult database integration, any help would be appreciated

Have a table for employees, containing:
ID, Name, Photo, Education, Business, Hobbies.
(photo being a URL preferably)
Have another table for questions and answers:
ID, EmployerID, Question, Answer, Sort
Then simply list what you want in the overall view page, and in the specific page load the questions and answers for the given user in the ascending sort order and display them. It's basic database connection and display, so if you still don't know where to start there are thousands of tutorials out there for displaying information from a database - start there, no reason to be specific to employee directory when searching.

Do you have mysql and PHP installed on your own computer, the machine you are typing on now?

I have no idea how you achieve anything in Dreamweaver, and would urge you to use a text editor initially to learn simple PHP commands that get Mysql to do things for you.
How did you manage to install PHP? Did you use an installer like WAMP?
