layers? tables? cells?

sorry if there is some faq i missed but i have searched high and low to figure out how it all works and ive winged it just about all the way and all i need to do now is properly lay out links and stuff over a navigation box that is a complete picture

is what i need a table? a cell? a new layer? all some neither?
i have no clue and after hours and hours of searching and trial and error im about ready to put this .45 to my head while listening to (insert popular 80s rock song here)

If you are trying to add links over the top of a image that is in a table just make the image a background image:

<TD background=/images/image1.gif width="44" height="88" border="0">< A HREF= ><FONT CLASS=Arial-16pxn>LINK1</FONT></A>

If you are using layers you will need to have exact positions for the image and the objects on top of the image:

<DIV ID="image1" style="position:absolute; top:0px; left:0px; width:82px; height:63px;"><IMG SRC="image1.gif" NAME="image1" ID="image1" WIDTH=82 HEIGHT=63 BORDER=0></DIV>

<DIV ID="link1" style="position:absolute; top:22px; left:16px; width:118px; height:18px;"><TABLE BORDER=0 CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 WIDTH=118><TR VALIGN=top><TD><DIV align=left>< A HREF= ><FONT CLASS=Arial-16pxn>LINK1</FONT></A></DIV></TD></TR></TABLE></DIV>

Hope this helps.
