Topic: Somebody please help

I have followed all the instructions on the faq for embedding into a web page, but I keep getting SWFObject is undefined and I cannot figure it out. Can someone please outline the steps I should take and where exactly should I paste the code that the faq indicates. Also I assume I put the images and thumbnails in the images folder of the page, correct? Sorry I'm being so dense, but I have little experience with web design.
