Hi,
It's certainly possible but it will take quite a bit of tinkering. To give
you an idea of what I have done see the AREU web
site<http://www.areu.org.af/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=11&Itemid=15>.
The Library Catalogue<http://nzdl.sadl.uleth.ca/cgi-bin/library?a=p&p=about&c=areu&l=en&nl=1>link
will take you to the about page of the Greenstone collection. Hosted
by
the very kind people at Greenstone. Quite a bit of this has been documented
in a case study on the greenstone wiki, but I don't seam to be able to load
the wiki at the moment. Maybe you'll have more success in finding it but
enough of the trumpet blowing.

The main thing is to look at the URLs that I developed in the HTML to link
into Greenstone and you can move on from there.

All the best.

Graeme.
