The top  navigation bar  represents all the subareas directly off of the Home
location. To create a new link  in the navigation, while at the main page, click
on Create Subarea hyperlink.

Thanks, but I guess I should have been more specific. I'm talking about the navigation  bar that says My Site, Site Settings, and Help.

To make changes to that area of the page, you would need to change the site
definition files if you want the change to be available to all pages on the
site. Provided your pages are have not become unghosted, the change to the site
definition files will affect all pages. If any pages have become unghosted, you
will need to modify those pages via FrontPage. If you only want the change to be
available to one page on the site, you could make the change in FrontPage.

What site definition file do I need to change to make it appear on all pages?

Answer #5    Answered By: Sterling Allison     Answered On: Apr 18

If the site is a Windows sharepoint  Services Site, you can edit to Top nav
and the Quick Launch bar  in FrontPage 2003. They are simply link  bars and
can include any link that you'd like.

That said, if you are talking about the SharePoint Portal Server Top nav,
this is generated based upon the hierarchy of Areas and cannot be changed,
but can be removed.

Yeah, I'm talking about the Portal Server. And I mean the list above
the Areas, where it says "My Site, Site Settings, Help". I found one
article that suggested adding javascript to a css file, but I'd like to
find a more direct means.

FYI - the top  NAV in a portal can be moved using the Manage Portal Site
link. Areas can be dragged and dropped in this view, changing/managing
the overall area structure (think taxonomy structure here) to give SPS
admins advanced abilities to re-do their taxonomies without having to
re-do their taxonomies, if you know what I mean.
