uploading graphics to linux server

How do i upload graphics files to my home directory at the school linux server?  I am currently only inputing code (HTML) via the vi editor.  For that matter, how do i upload (FTP?) any files to a server?

Depends. If your school server allows you FTP access, that's the quickest way. Check with the admin folks, and they'll step you through it (it's a lot like moving files between directories).

If you don't have FTP access, then they probably have some sort of routine similar to that used by xdrive.com.

I can't answer your question about your school, you gotta talk to the admin of your school server.

BUT uploading I CAN answer.
You need a program that lets you upload files VIA FTP (you can do dos prompt, but..)

Some FTP Programs are
   - CuteFTP
   - WS_FTP

Goto http://www.download.com, type in "FTP" and you'll get a lot of results. I suggest WS_FTP, but for the begginer CuteFTP is a good program.

To Upload you will need to know.
   - Address / IP# of the server
   - User Name and password
   - If you server requires yout o login every time.

You should ask your ADMIN these questions.

HanGuLE -- A better (more complete answer than mine)... Just a tip, though -- common practice, as suggested by the "Experts Only" link at the top of the page, is to put your "answer" in as a comment, rather than an answer. The main reason for doing so is that it doesn't "lock" the question, in case someone comes along with a better or more complete answer than the one you might propose...
