You are getting the hang of it.
Perhaps you can change "my site" to something more relevant

Can I ask the MODERATOR to rename this post "starting your first Linux download website for beginners" or something?

We kinda went off-track-I apologize...

OK-Repo
Yes-I learn by imitation/modification
So I just copy what you guys do here...and googling alot.
Gonna fix up the site today

Needs-
I need to add "content"(is that what it's called?), like a video player and graphics
The google webtool thing is bizarre and weird-doesn't point me to the page I made...?

couple more questions-how do i setup different pages?
Like a Home page
Contact page
statement page

and do I need to have a folder named "index.html" with the graphics, etc inside in the same folder as the "index.html"
Like when you save a htm page you get a "....html" and a folder with stuff in it.?

The homepage is your index.html
index.html will always be loaded when you access multidistro.com

you can create folders
/
/iso
/graphics
....
and then point to them in your index.html

or put everything in /

it's a bit like a filesystem

to create a statement page
create
statement.html and point to it from your index.html


Take a look at
http://www.make-a-web-site.com/
http://www.2createawebsite.com/

As said before, install apache on your server and use this to practice and to test.

OK-working on it-
Uploading MultiDistro-Magic-LiveCD now-be done in about an hour(45kbs upload)
As soon as it's done I'll upload a new "index.html"

Now-I guess tonight I'll be learning "crash-course web-design 101"
with the links you posted Repo-

I'm also accepting donations for my site from people like you guys, so dig deep and spread the wealth!

OK Repo-I installed apache2, but lost from there-seems like rocket science to me...

There is no GUI, and trying "apache" in the term got "unknown command".

PHP Code:
As said beforeinstall apache on your 
server 
and use this to practice and to test
I don't understand how I can use apache to practice HTML/web design???
Can you clarify?

apache is a webserver (like the one where your site is hosted)
In your browser type
127.0.0.1
if apache is correctly installed you should see the apache page, which is on your computer.

So if you put the file index.html in
/var/www/apache2-default/
you should see your page, when you type
127.0.0.1

now copy the files you want to put on the website to
/var/www/apache2-default/
and retype 127.0.0.1

OK-that's not working...there is no /apache2-default or any other folders in "www"?
I made the folder and copied over index.html-still just says "it works"

what gives?

it is in /var/
can also be /var/www/
depending on the distribution

which distribution are you using ?

Code:
find / -name index.html

OK-got it!
Thanks

The CD is ready for Download too!!
It should have good speed-

I recommend playing it in qemu/vbox to ASSURE YOURSELF that it works good before burning to CD...( http://multidistro.com/ )
