First, find out whether your system administrator and the people
in charge will allow you to create pages for personal use.  They
may also be able to help you set up your pages.

Alternatively, you can go to a local InterNet Service Provider (ISP).
In the United States, you can check the following index for local ISPs:

	<a href="http://www.vni.net/thedirectory/">
	http://www.vni.net/thedirectory/
</a>

Shop around because there can be big differences in the cost of 
maintaining your page. 

If you have already have InterNet access, but need a place to store your
web pages, there are a number of sites that will allow you to post 
Scouting web pages for free.  Check out this 

	<a href="http://www.emf.net/~troop24/template/free.html">
	list of free web site providers
</a>

Next, learn about the HTML language. A good primer is

<a href="http://www.ncsa.uiuc.edu/General/Internet/WWW/HTMLPrimer.html">
	A beginners guide to HTML
</a>

There has been an explosion of other resources for the beginner.  Yahoo
is a good place to find most of them:

<a href="http://www.yahoo.com/text/Computers_and_Internet/Internet/World_Wide
_Web/">
	Yahoo: Computers and Internet: Internet: World Wide Web
</a>

It's also a good idea to look at other pages and view the HTML source
to find out how a certain effect can be reached.

For a bare-bones, foot-in-the-door web presence, you can try using the 
templates that are available at the Troop 24 web site:

<a href="http://www.emf.net/~troop24/template/">
         http://www.emf.net/~troop24/template/
</a>
