    I've Drupal installed onto on of my web sites. Right now it gives me the welcom page and I can log in.

    For now I would like to build a page with an index default (kind of a welcome page). One disclaimer page and five subject pages (products, profile, projects, people, processes)

    Basicall I want to build a page with an index default (kind of a welcome page).
    One disclaimer page
    five subject pages:
    * products
    * profile
    * present projects
    * people
    * processes

    Actually it's a simple site with a menue.
    SEMrush
    Later I would look for more elaborate content relating to SEO, blogs, catalogues, forums, adsense aso.

    So what must I do now step by step?

    Write your pages (add "nodes"), then set your "welcome" page as your default home page in your site settings. You can add menus on the sides by creating "blocks".

    If you are stuck on any particular spot, post that particular question and we'll help.

    If you want to start with that simple site you described, I suggest the following:
    Go to menu configuration, and create your new menu. Let's call simply "site menu".
    Then start adding your pages, using navigation menu "create content" item. For each page, there's menu fieldset, where you can set up what menu item page will get into. Select "site menu" there, and give title for menu item.
    Now you have your pages, and a menu, but it's not yet shown on the site. Go the block configuration, using drag-n-drop "site menu" block to the sidebar. Here you have your site menu with links to pages.
    Next part - what will be your home page. For simplest site, you need to create the page, which will serve as homepage, then in site configuration replace "node" homepage with URL path of that page.
    Voila, you have your new site ready :)
