Setting up fields

Hey everyone. I’m very new at web developing and I have a question, which may seem very basic to everyone, so sorry if it is a waste of your time. Anyway, I am trying to create fields on my page. By that I mean if a person wants to for example enter in their name, address, age, sex, etc… info I’d like them to enter it into a writing field.

I currently use dreamweaver 2004 and am experimenting a bit with the insert form command. But I have no luck with a submit button. I’m also lost on what happens when someone submits an entry. Does it go to a database somewhere or does all the information get emailed to me?

Thanks alot if you can answer this question.

Please don’t double post. This question is already achieving the proper attention here.
