Under Site Settings > Galleries you can find Masterpages.  This gallery also holds the page layouts.

http://<hostname>/_catalogs/masterpage/Forms/AllItems.aspx

Is this what you're looking for?

Hi
I don't think so... I can't the templates in there.

I can see three original master pages, but that doesn't seem to help me..... ?

I just saw that in some articles that there is the "Page layouts and site template" under "Look and Feel" - and I wondered why I can't see it. I thought it might make my life easier...

Hi - confusing isn't it!

The "Page Layouts and Site Templates" option will only appear if you have the full version of SharePoint Server 2010 and you've activated the SharePoint Server Publishing feature in your site collection.

I suspect you are running SharePoint Foundation 2010 which doesn't have this option.
