Do you have to pay to start a website?
No you don't have to pay, as you can always use free software and free web hosting providers. The question you should ask yourself is, since there are so many free open source software out there that with a little time spent by you could allow you to do most things. Why not invest in some cheap low end or even good shared web hosting (will cost you a couple of cups of coffee a month) and give a real go at whatever it is that you are putting together. Ofcourse, you would also need to buy your own domain name, but at least that way all the effort you put in directing traffic to your site, would go to improving your brand name and Google Ranking. Over the medium to longer term that would help you out an awful lot.

What is the difference between a menu bar and a navigation bar?
Menu bars allow sub-menus, but a navigation bar does not. Use the insert split option in order to create your sub-menus. Play around with it, it's pretty simple. Tabs are considered to be related to each other whereas Navigation Bar is not. Tabs are generally used to segregate data are somehow related. Like A profile can be displayed in Tabs where it can be divided in Personal, Professional, Education tabs. It is mainly used to show data about the same hierarchy but different in nature and also for organizing the data. On the other hand, Navigation Bar as it suggests is used for different topics which might not be inter related.

How do you put a webcam on your website?
There are a number of steps to this. Ideally, you want a program that will automatically upload your image to the FTP settings. If you want to, you can even put streaming video on your website nowadays, and not just stills! 1) Get a webcam working -- the sort you'd use to video-chat on Skype. 2) Sign up at www.ustream.com (free). 3) Copy the "Embedding" code provided by ustream, so you can put a live video window in your website. 4) Add the code to your page. 5) Finally, follow the simple instructions on ustream to "go live." Everything the webcam sees (and hears) is streaming to anyone who visits your website. Up to 100,000 people can watch the stream at once (providing you're broadcasting, of course). Pretty clever. Next, when you want to extend your capabilities during streaming, have a look at superwebcam (also free), which lets you superimpose scrolling messages, graphics, etc. on the outgoing video picture. You can also use it to broadcast still pictures or video from your hard disk when you don't want to be seen personally. Ustream also has a Facebook app, so you can embed your live stream in your Facebook Profile page. To view the live video streaming from webcam on website, a Web FLV player that supports live streaming is needed. You can check the RTMP Stream Plugin from playerdiy.com - http://www.playerdiy.com/configuration/addons/rtmp.html This is tutorial - http://www.playerdiy.com/support/tutorial/customize-flash-video-player.html
What type of laptop would be best for graphics internet web design basic office and making cds?
Essentially what it boils down to is a system that will help you with the type of overall work you're doing and the programs required to achieve your goals for that project. Mac or PC really doesn't matter anymore, though there are those on both sides who will swear by both. The top design programs are built for use with both Mac and PC, so in the end, what matters is your personal preference, software technical requirements (RAM, Video RAM, CPU, etc.), and of course, what you can afford. In general, the best type of notebooks for top design programs are going to be those for gaming or high performance. This is because they are specifically built for high-end multimedia use and presentation, and if you compare the technical requirements for such programs, they line up very well with high performance systems, with a little extra for software updates as time passes. Bottom line - for top performance, check the system requirements of the media design programs you wish to run, be it for graphics, sound, video, animation, etc., double the RAM and VRAM, and you'll be set with a system that should carry you through at least 3 software updates. Always get a system with 2 internal drives, never just one; a single drive severely limits performance when dealing with design programs (e.g., main drive being used as a scratch disk for large files).

Is there a resource for finding out collection agencies names and addresses for bankruptcy?
Get a copy of your credit report from the three major credit bureaus. You can get one free copy from each per year by law. You can obtain this free copy at http://annualcreditreport.com (see link below). These reports should have the contact info of your creditors (and collection agencies) listed. Google / Phone book combination is the best.

Using FrontPage how do you get a form to submit to email and reset to the original values via one button?
* First of all, you have to inset a new form, Insert>Form. Then, add all the information you need to the form (inputs, text box, check box, etc.) see the HTML code and where it says POST you ofcourse have to direct it to the process page, it can be php or asp as the most known. don't ever try if you don't know what i mean by the process page. actually all this staff with forms requiered an extra programming language which can be php or asp. If you do know, then just add all the items text box etc.. between* I would definitely agree with the answer of PHP and ASP process pages. You must make a process page that will do both at the same time (or in order that you wish) it was easy to just post "mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org" back before security came out hard. I still use perl scripts as a form handler on all my customers pages. it works and you can apply CSS styles to them... Please note that FrontPage is an obsolete product and was discontinued in 2003. A common complaint regarding it is that it generates bloated and incomprehensible HTML code. You should use a better editor.
