You will need to have a database (such as MySQL, or SQL Server, Access, whatever ) to store the data in as well as a web server that can handle a server language, like PHP or ColdFusion that can interact with the database.

Assuming you're using CS4, go here:
Be sure to read (and reread) through the "Making pages dynamic", "Building applications visually" and "Building forms" sections. For there, you should ask follow up questions about the dynamic support within Dreamweaver in the Application Development forum:
If, after reading those help sections and asking in the App Dev forum, there is something that you'd like to do that isn't built in, then please do ask here for specific functionality that you'd need.
Beyond that, please feel free to checkout WebAssist's products (the company I work for) for Dreamweaver:
