Default Searchable database?

Hi guys, I need some advice on how to set up the following please.

I am making a site that will need a searchable database. I will want a search field on my homepage where people can search for names. I want the search result to show a page as follows:

(thumbnail picture here) Joe Bloggs

(G) Joe Bloggs in this garden
(V) Joe Bloggs in London
(G) Joe Bloggs in Paris
(G) Joe Bloggs working

When a name is searched for I want it to show the following, (persons name, including a small thumbnail of them and on that page a list of all links shown as a description (not the full URL). I would want to categorise each link as either a gallery (G), or a video (V), using a small symbol.

So, basically each person will have their own record, containing their name, thumbnail pic and numerous links

I know how to set up a Mysql database on my server, but thats it! I have no knowledge of PHP or anything else, so I would really appreciate some advice on where to start with this.

Thanks in advance for any help

My best advice is to start learning PHP (there's shitloads of tutorials online) until you have the skills necessary to build what you want to build...
