    if you want to copy files to the web - you can do this with FTP software - like ws_ftp etc - there are also a number of free webspaces available - which the only requirement is you login once every 30days etc - but they have minimum storage

    what are you trying to do?
    what country are you in?

    so you need to set up some webspace, I dont know anything about Canada - have a search for free webspace and see what comes up for canada - i dont think 500MB is going to be easy to get for free.
    In the UK i know you can get 20MB easy.
    cable companies who supply broadband connections for people, also provide a free 50MB webspace.

    so when you get an ISP account with webspace - you will have a username and a password - they will also supply an ftp address for you to connecto
