new to smartftp

Im in the process of re-building my company web site that a student designed back in 2003 - we can no longer get hold of him

anyway, i know how to edit the HTML pages and upload them but i dont know how to create new pages and links to them from the opening e-mail page.

i really hope someone will help me as im struggling like you would not believe!

ps.....i start my open uni course in october in web design and i cant wait!
