    I'm trying to load a webpage I had written onto my iDisk in the /Sites directory. My file is named "Index.html" but when I try to go to
    http://homepage.mac.com/macktheknife/index.html it doesn't display. Does anyone know how to load your webpages onto iDisk and .Mac so that it could be viewed when I enter my address into the browser? Thanks.

    Go to mac.com and log in. Then, click on Homepage. You can then upload sites from your computer, or selct siets from your iDisk.

    Hope this helps.

    One more thing

    I should also add that I have not signed up for the full .Mac service just yet. Does this matter?

    Nope. The Homepage feature is part of the trial offer, it's just that you get 20mb rather than 100mb.

    Well, I've logged in and re-logged in to my iDisk, copied over an Index.html file to replace my old one and .Mac still says it's unavailable. The funny thing is, if I just type my address as http://homepage.mac.com/macktheknife/ it brings me to an old photo album called PhotoAlbum2.html. I have already removed the file from the /Site directory and yet it still brings it up! What gives? I've tried logging in through the .Mac homepage, but it doesn't give me an option to upload my own files, just creating more templates.

    Please help. Thanks.

    It's case sensitive. 'index.html' and 'Index.html' are not the same file under the filesystem/webserver they are using.

    Change the name to index.html, then upload it again.
