Posted:If you are interested, I would be happy to present some ideas based on what you have there. I won't say I am a professional, but it is something I am learning about.
If you want to do it your self, I would suggest:
First Page (with image) - Use a CSS div to place the image and text on the page so it will appear pretty much in the centre of any screen.
Navigation - If you want to keep the Index of the site as a central separate page, ensure that the other pages have an easy and obvious link back to the index. Otherwise have the index appear on every page.
PM me if you are interested. I can't guarantee time frames on the work due to other commitments, so I wouldn't be looking for a fee (maybe only freebies and a mention on the site).
Note: Just as firespinners hate amateurs who undercut on price, I am sure that web-designers hate people who offer to do it for free. So just to be clear, I have a lot on and can't guarantee time frames. I also am just learning and would use this for practice, so I can't guarantee you perfection. If you want a real professional job there are a few people around here who do this for a living and may well be able to help.
It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.
What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...

Posted:I do this for a living, but I have no problem with people doing things for free. I do how ever have many problems with most web sites and most people who make them (things are changing though...)
A few things I don't like:
1) Remove the 1st and 2nd pages. No one want 2 clicks before they can see any content. 2) Add the menu on all pages 3) Add some design. Apart from black and the pic, you have no design at all. If you're after a simple look then I think you've gone a bit too far. Once you start to think about a menu and content on every page you'll have to think about layout. 4) Remove the counter. If you want stats for your site, get some stats taht log more than numbers. Try Google Analytics. 5) Think about something other than yahoo (or any other free service) for your content and domain. Can you move your name to another host? Do yo upay for that? You really don't want to by tied in to any contract with that stuff.
That is the basic stuff. Here is a basic list of things that are wrong with the code. This could cause all sorts of problems.
1) don't use Yahoo. 2) Use CSS and apply it to semantic code. I'm willing to convert it to standards compliant code for you, once the design is in place.
There's too many home fires burning and not enough trees

Posted:Sym - was just saying that its a good place to start - there are other places on the net with far greater info but for a complete newbie it helped me lots about three years ago. And I just prefer using tables as I find them easy! I dont understand css tables - but i love messing about with css - mmmm coloured scrollbars
Always use "so's your face" and "only on Tuesdays" in as many conversations possible

Needing a myspace account to view the video means I'll never watch it, sorry. If you have no bandwidth for that sort of hosting why not use googlevideos or something similar? I really wanna watch the video!! But I'll never give my details to myspace and get spammed forever....
