Planning on putting together a web directory. Any recommendations?
Am willing to spend money on a script but would like pros/cons of shareware/free versions of directory scripts. I've done some reading and seen some recommendations but if anyone has experience with multiple scripts and settled on one that would be really helpful so I can make up my mind.

My business partner wants one of these as well, so it looks like i'm going to be pestered into writing one as we have some specific things we would like for it (they're really pretty simple as far as programming goes to make your own. Granted yahoo's and such are larger and more complicated, but for simple ones... minimal code is needed).

I usedLink Up Gold/ for a while on one of my sites. Costs about $125. It's a good script (and does more than just a web directory), and the support was pretty good at the time I was using it. It stopped using it about 8 or 9 months ago, because it wasn't giving our site the boost we wanted, but as I said, easy to use, and good support, in fact I needed something that the script didn't do, and they wrote me a fix to do it in less than a day, at no charge.
