There are two ways to set up a personal webpage. The first is through
the HSPH Unix server, which will give you a page with the URL www.hsph.harvard.edu/~username
(also www.biostat.harvard.edu/~username) where username is your Unix login.
The second is through the HSPH Novell server, which will give you a page
