    I've got the script ready, I just can't find exactly where to put it in my existing script.

    Anyone know how to do this?

    What script? All you have to do is to make the icon file, call it favicon.ico, and put it in the root of your webpage. No scripting needed.

    the public_html or www folder... so that the ico file can be accessed by:

    http://sitename.com/favicon.ico

    The 'root' of your website is the very top folder, often called 'public_html' or 'html_docs'. The same place the main index.html (or php or whatever) file goes.

    You can also place a line of code inside your HEAD tags to help some browsers find the favicon:

    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.yoursite.com/favicon.ico" TYPE="image/ico">
