ok, I'm UNIX-aholic but I know to handle any kind of Windows too, even those from M$ ;-))

So I asume you're telneting from M$ Windows to your ISP's server which seems to run UNIX (see topic of this question).
If you want to send files over the internet, telnet is a bad solution (it can be done if the remote site is UNIX:), better use ftp instead.
To post a page on your ISP's server, you must ask your ISP how to do it, usually you just send them via ftp or with you your browser's "post" capability.

So you have to `ftp' to your ISP, `cd' to the desired directory and then `put' your files there.

If this in's suffisant, please tell us what's missing.

To change local directory (the one on your hard disk) within an FTP client, the command is "lcd <directory>"  To change the directory on the remote server, "cd directory".  If you start ftp from the directory in which you have a file, you should be able to put that file to a remote server without changing directory.  If not, you can probably do a "!pwd" from inside the ftp client to find out where you are on your local hard disk and move around from there.
