It's easy. Just point your browser to your favorite website and put in the domain name follwed by /robots.txt like this:
and you'll get their robots.txt file. Edit is and upload it to your root directory next to the INDEX file. Here's a clip from Brett's - he had mentioned last weke he had to exclude unknown bots because they were hiting his site so hard and costing him bandwidth. Not a bad idea IMHO to start with this one...
# WebmasterWorld.com: robots.txt
