Sorry for the ignorance, but I have been building a website - and even  
though I've managed to teach myself the basics inthe last 2 months (creating  
rollovers, animated gifs etc) my site lacks one small thing - a simple  
upload form.

I basically want to have a little form on one of my pages where viewers can  
type their name & email address and then click on an upload button to attach  
a file and then it would get emailed to me.

My hosting package has fantastico, php and cpanel etc - basically all the  
tools i probably need to do this - I just don't know how.

The one thing I did try was in Fantastico, using phpformgenerator, but the  
results were disappointing - I had to try different sizes by trial and error  
(there was no preview of my results until after I'd created it) and most  
annoying, the final page had the design and layout of - I just want to have the form within my own  

Can anyone tell me the basics or point me to an online -tutorial?

The website has got to be about the best online documentation
for a programming language that I have used. Of course, in many cases it
needs to be supplemented by some kind of tutorial to help understand
some of the basics behind it. Here is the manual link for the file
uploads section:

Here is another site that has helped out some of my students:
