download 2 files site request

1) I have made up a grub splashimage howto that altho not absolutely necessary would ideally allow persons to download a new stage2 file if they already have grub.

And I have 2 other graphics file that if not available make my help tutorial pretty hopeless.

I uploaded 3 files to my yahoo briefcase but only the jpg format is visible at my yahoo briefcase.

I then renamed my grub stage2 file and uploaded as a text file and same for a works.xpm.gz file but yahoo still hides it.

(2) I have seen messages that tripod has free web space but I am so naive on web design and on the fast builder I can't see where I make my files available.

(3) In the interim, anyone reading this post, Mods do not need to reply, who can offer their site for a couple hundred kilobytes or help me with understanding tripod would of course get credit in my grub splashimage howto.

I realise that I have not spent a lot of time learning tripod because I thought I could trick yahoo's briefcase.

I failed

I failed sob sob and I am tired.

Forgive any perceived crankiness on my part, its my defining character blemish (joke)

why not just rename works.xpm.gz to works.xpm.gz.jpg and just tell people to rename it?

I only just spotted your distro is GENTOO and the rescue cd is Gentoo and I guess I have to thank you again.
