What do you want help with?  HTML?  making your images display?  Or 
making items available for download?

For HTML, go here:
Read the whole thing. Print it out. You'll need to refer to it often.

For images, you have to save them as a .gif or .jpg.  If it's a 
photo, save it as a 72 dpi .jpg.  If it is something with big, flat, 
colors, save it as a .gif.  To keep things simple, don't use capital 
letters in filenames.  Your file paths have to be correct, also.  If 
you have your images in a subfolder called "images," your image tag 
will go something like this:

<img src="images/foo.gif">

If you don't have an "images" subfolder (or directory), I'd recommend 
making one.

I wouldn't worry about making items available for download until you 
get the HTML basics figured out.  Then you can ask the next question.
