CRM packages for small companies

We are a small start up company that needs and wants to set up a web based customer support infrastructure. Most of the products seem to be aimed at the Fortune xxx and not for small outfits. Are there CRM packages aimed at small companies? I say CRM but really all we need is the customer support functionality - knowledge database, problem logging, tracking etc.

You might want to look at the following companies: Act, Frontrange Solutions, Commence, Upshot.com, and Sales.com. Be careful, although you think your needs are modest, your requirements could become much more robust as you further analyze the needs -- please identify your core needs and perform a cost/benefit analysis so that you understand the tradeoffs between software solutions. For example, knowledge management could potentially expand into its own application with very sophisticated functions.
