I'm sure you're new to web development, so I won't be too critical, but I do have a few things to say.

Alert boxes like the "Welcome Dude" when the page loads are pretty annoying, as is background music, so I would ditch those. The bouncing "Welcome to" is also annoying and actually can cause problems for visitors with epilepsy, which is why the official specifications for HTML no longer contain the <marquee> element. That should just be a heading tag. Was this done in Word? At first I thought Frontpage, but it usually identfies itself in the code.

Welcome to the world of web development. It's not too hard to get started, but it takes some effort to get good. If you want to learn more about building proper sites that work consistently on different browsers, check out htmlgoodies.com as well as any related sites that offer tips and tutorials.

Isn't this how Homer Simpson started on his path to becoming Mr. X?

Just watch out for koalas in masks.
