Do you want to learn the hard way or the easy way?

So you have made your site already? Well, presuming you have, make sure your home page / main page is named index.html (you may have to turn on the option to show filename extensions to check). Connect to your iDisk and find the folder that says sites or homepage (I haven't used .mac for ages... can somebody clarify this?) and drag your files (so that includes index.html and all your other pages and images) from your computer to the idisk folder. That's all. Your site is then accessible from http://homepage.mac.com/username.

Relative. What exactly are you typing into your browser, and what are the filenames of the files on your iDisk?

And you're typing in http://homepage.mac.com/username/index.html? It sounds like you've put your files in the wrong folder.
