I better get this right...
I want to add the robots.txt file to my site, but this is something that I really want to get right.
What would the basic file look like without excluding anything.

And welcome to the board!
Thanks for the link Heini. :)
Let's see if I undertand,

Yup, that looks correct to me.
Everything else is allowed to be retrieved by any visitor, be it bot or browser.
my question is,
where does the file go?

my dir structure is....
www cgi-bin images
[all html content]
should i put robots.txt here with the HTML content? or one level up?
It goes in the same directory as your index or default file. Most people would call that the www root directory, I think.
Test with: [mydomain.com...]
