DreamWeaver is definately the best route to take. It's simple to use and has a decent interface. STAY AWAY FROM MICROSOFT FRONTPAGE!!! It's a terrible program, and not all free webshosting sites have the correct frontpage extensions installed.
However, whatever program you decide to use, make sure you do familiarize yourself with some basic HTML code. You can do some amazing things with templates, but it's always best to have a little knowledge of HTML code.
You can find tutorials on this on the web. Start out small, and try not to overwelm yourself. Make some basic pages, then as you become more familiar with making webpages, work your way up to something a little more fancy.
I've taken HTML classes (along with other programming classes which can also help) and I've been using DreamWeaver for years. I still don't know everything there is to know about designing, but you learn more each day.
Also, you can find free templates already created on the web. Grab one of these and they can also help you learn some HTML code and how to minipulate (sp?) things. Good Luck!!!
