How do you moderate a beautiful kick-off meeting for a website redesign project? What questions do I ask our prospective client?

A prospective client is coming in so our company can redo their small organizations website, and I'll be sitting in a half-pitch, half-kick off meeting with him and our web designer. I imagine it's going be me asking a ton of questions about his current site and his organization but what are the most important questions to ask?
I have never moderated one of these conversations before but my company needs me to step in and do it because our interactive project manager has left us.
I have a light understanding of HTML and some of the languages (not fluent in any of them), I know what a CMS is but I couldn't tell you the differences between them (our company always used DNN, but we have also used Drupal before for our clients). I don't even know if he wants a CMS. I don't know a lot of stuff.
I guess I'm going to need to BS my way through this one today and am looking for any help on how to be an awesome, non-idiotic, non-annoying and intuitive website project manager who orchestrates amazing kick-off meetings...and then proceeds to be an awesome PM?
