Absolute newbie.

I'm working for a client via a vm. He has the 2010 Basic package set up.

I've worked by going into designer. From the sites menu option I've created 3 sub sites and made changes to the home site via the browser menu option. When the client goes to http://localhost/... he can't see any of my work.

How do I publish my work onto the server?
I've lived on the Microsoft sites looking for an answer. Is there a good reference site out there with active forums?

Any help is appreciated
