i hope this is the right section to post this in. wasnt sure if this question was client side or server side

i have a javascript slideshow that i would like to add to my website. its free to use and it came with some coding when downloaded. my problem is that this is my first time EVER using java (ive fiddled with php tho ) and i cant get the slide show to work on my site. the coding it came with gives you an entire webpage ... i just need the slideshow to go inside a div container instead of being a whole page

the following is an embedded style that you can simply copy and paste to notepad, save as an html file, and open in your browser. (im using firefox) all the images etc are already being hosted. so you have to do nothing but open it in your browser to see the script working. like i said, this is the code for an entire webpage ... i just need the slide show by it self in a div container

You didn't included the corresponding js file. You can get it from the site where you downloaded the script.
