First things first, you need to create some pages in HTML. I recommend Daves tutorials, all on the left over there
Now, once you have made some pages, you need to get them onto the web. You do this by having webspace. Your isp has probably given you some free webspace, read the literature that came with your sign up.
To get your pages into your webspace, you need to FTP them there. FTP is File Transfer Protocol. Its a posh way of saying 'uploading'.
The best (free) ftp program out there is WSFTP. Download it from places like tucows.com.
Once your pages are up, you can configure your CJB account to 'redirect' to your webspace, and you are there.
Any more questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Certainly can help...but need your help to do so.
Basically, you need 3 things to login an ftp session.
1 The correct server name/ip address
2 The correct username
3 the correct password.
If your having trouble configuring your ftp client to connect to the server, then you can try it the easy way in MS-DOS.
Open a dos window (Start->Programs->MS-DOS Prompt)
Type this -
If you have the address right, you should be prompted for a login name. Put in your account name and password and you should be on a winner.
You are logged in.
So... try this. If it doesnt connect to the server, you will be able to tell which piece of info you have wrong by using this method.
If you want any tips on using DOS for ftp, just post. I'll list some commands.
