    It's called a Favicon. Wikipedia seems to have a pretty decent article on them here (including instructions for where to put them in your sites directory, etc).

    My shorter answer :)

    Make two 16x16px images (favicons):
    favicon.png
    favicon.ico

    Put the following links in the head section:

    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" />
    <link rel="icon" href="favicon.png" type="image/png" />

    Browsers and standards move on so it won't be long before someone more up to date corrects me.. :)

    In the directory where all of index.htm/php or whatever, put an image named favicon.ico . That will be your favicon.

    Yes. Not in an 'images' folder or whatever. href="favicon.ico" refers to images in the same directory as the page on which it's written.
