Hi afowphin, you need to create another webpage. I suggest that you open your first web page in something like Notepad, copy the HTML, make a new file and paste the stuff in there. You then need to link to that file from your homepage.

You might want to learn some HTML at http://www.w3schools.com.

Jylan gave some good advice, but I think you're looking for a bit faster fix if it's for school. If this is for school and you are being graded for content and not your coding (Lady help you if you are), then go over to Open Source Web Design http://www.oswd.org/ and find a layout that works for you and goes with your content (you probably want something a little dark, avoid flowers, kittens and puppies).

You can then rather quickly find out how to make the little changes at W3C schools www.w3schools.com/ to add your content to your new layout.

Hopefully, this little bit of experiance will encourage you to learn more about web design.

Well, after uploading anohter page to your public folder...

your webiste's gonna be under
http://gangstuhpenguin.frih.net/[your file name].html

Just make a link somewhere in your homepage, so people can navigate to it.

In your HTML, put a <a href="http://gangstuhpenguin.frih.net/[your file name].html">The text for the link you want people to click on</a>

WELL GOOD LUCK!!!

I reccomend if you go to OSWD do not use the layouts but rather make your own based on a layout.

Have you seen his site? http://gangstuhpenguin.frih.net

I don't want to talk badly about a newby, because lets face it, we have all been newbies at one time. I want to encourage him slowly though. Get his site up and looking good, then let him customise it to show his own taste and personality.

After all that is what free web hosting is for. Learning new things and trying them out. OSWD is a good place to see design you like and download it so you can open up the code and disect it and see how it works and if you can make it better. This is seen in the design called autonomous which was improved by another with the layout clean looks. In Clean Looks notes the designer admitted that he had trouble with the drop shadows of the boxes and another user directed him to a solution.

This is the kind of thing that make OSWD an excellent tool for newbs and experianced alike.

You could check my site. It'll teach you everything you need to know about creating web pages, websites and hosting them on the net. Easy to understand tutorials and no geek speak.

You might also want to try nVu since it works with all os's and is quite fast and free.

I had a look again and see that you went to OSWD and chose a template (but didn't do much to change it, it even has the original text). One thing you ought to check out though is that particular template uses .png with transparentcy as it's image format. If you look at it with IE 6 and under you are going to see a lot of grey corners and it won't look so nice.

Maybe you should try again and this time put your own content in before you upload to your site. Also remember I suggested OSWD as a teaching aid to help you learn more about how to do web coding and design by disecting other peoples work.
