and where to find space to place it.
All of these tips are for Windows 95 and 98
Remember there is more than one way to do any of these
jobs. This is only one.
What Browser do I use?
I have found that Netscape 4.5 or higher is the best
for me to use. Because of it's Composer program. Composer can be
use to make, edit, preview, and publish the page.
Get Netscape here: Netscape
To Edit the page with Netscape browser
Click on Communicator,
Use composer to edit the page.
To Preview the page with Netscape browser
Click on Preview see how it will look if published.
If you are on line.
You can also check the link and see if they work.
After you have checked out the page and are back on the page
You may return to editing the page just by clipping on the X
in the upper right hand corner.
To Publish the page with Netscape browser
Click on Publish
fill in the boxes
HTTP or FTP Location to publish to:
user name: (the name you used to get the site )
password: (the password you used )

check Files associated with page
What is a ftp program?
After the page has been made and a site to post the
page has been found.
A ftp program is use to edit and post your page to and
from the site.
This program is faster and easier to do this job.
Download it at WS_
To setup the ftp program to connect to your site ( Sample. ..Tripod.com
User ID: (the name you used to get the site )

the file from your computer the sites computer.

site by clicking on the arrow pointing the the right.
You will also transfer all picture and mid file ( one at time ) that
are related to the page that you have made.
Click on close and page has been posted.
Go to the web page site with your browser and check it out.
Free internet Phone
I have found that a internet phone is a must.
When you have one of these phones you will be able have
somebody talk you thorough
your problems while you are doing it.
Both persons must have the same
type of phone program installed.
Here are two free phones that work quite well.
Remember only one person can talk at a time. So
take turns talking.
this phone work's with a program called ICQ
can be use by it's self, but is a large program
Make unlimited free long-distance phone calls to anyone in the U.S.
There nothing to download or install. Go to dialpad.com
(Very Good, But some time, hard to get in to.)
