You go to IE and open it.
In the address window type:
ftp//username:p[email protected]www.yoursite.com and hit enter.
I usually put IE on one side the monitor and windows explorer on the other, just drag and drop the files from explorer to IE.

I tried that and all I get is 'invalid command'. I admit, I don't know what I'm doing...:D

You have ftp with nothing in front of it?
I've used it for a long time, works great cause it don't timeout and make you reenter.
Try copy and paste this link into the address bar, I just tried it and I know it works:
ftp://ftp.microsoft.com

I have two web page files I've uploaded to the same place. How do I link the second page to the first?
Writing in the link to my index.html file doesn't work...nothing shows up

I am a bit confused, but I think you would be better off using something like WSFTP_LE for your FTP. Second, you should just have to add the code
< a href="www.yourdomain.com/yoursecondpage" > your description here < /a > to get to the second page.

Removing the spaces after and before the < & > brackets I gave you.

If you second page is off the server of the main page, you would have to add "http://" to the front of the www. Are you remembering to add the .HTM or .HTML to the end? It is prebably also case-sensitive.

How about posting the URL for us to take a look at?

Edit

This just caught my eye again.

Writing in the link to my index.html file doesn't work...nothing shows up
Make sure you have som e text between the > and the < /A >

Also make sure the link is BEFORE the < /body > and < /HTML > tags.

Using the windows FTP I just copied and pasted the individual files....my index.html and the graphics etc. one by one. I have a second text page there also that is: My_Page.html
When I write in the code to link from my index.html to the My_Page.html nothing shows up on the link page to click on.

I got my two pages to link.
I have a wav file on my 'home' page and I had written the code for the link below the code for the wav. I just copied the link code above the wav code and it worked.
Does anybody know why that worked??

Would have to see the html code for the page to explain it but glad you have it working now.

Like Del said, we would have to see the code. If you would post the URL here we could look at it!
