Default noob starting out

Hi I am very new to linux, I have just built my first Lamp server with ubuntu 6.10
and I am wondering if any of you could point me in the right direction on how to start building my own web page I have apache2 up and running and a domain name directed to my IP but i am wondering if dreamweaver will work with this version of ubuntu and how i would load these files from my windows pc to this linux server.

You can put Your websites in /var/www (probably /var/www/apache2-default).
To make it /var/www enter this command:
a2dissite default

and restart Apache:

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

To send files over the network You need to have an ftp or ssh (more secure) server installed on the machine wich runs LAMP.
If You didn't install ssh earlier,enter:
sudo apt-get install ssh openssh-server
(type in the password)
and/or ftp server:
sudo apt-get install proftpd

Configure it as standalone.
With no further configuration You should be able to connect to the server with an ftp client and/or ssh/scp client.

Normally you upload a website with ftp. Remember that Dreamweaver has a build in FTP-client.
