Hey, what a coincidence! I created my sitemap an hour ago.

I did a Google search "php sitemap generator" and found phpSitemapNG (free)

http://enarion.net/google/phpsitemapng/

I uploaded it onto my site via FTP and ran the script, it worked just fine - pretty straightforward process. I don't think it would take more than 20 minutes for you to generate the Sitemap and submit it to Google, etc. with this.

Detailed installation instructions can be found on their site.

On my site which is powered by drupal I use a module named gsitemap to create sitemaps for the google search thingie. I haven't found something similar for msn or yahoo yet.

It does not generate a viewable sitemap, it is designed to pretty up the data for the google search engine. Naturally you won't be able to use this module if you don't have drupal.
