OK, I figured out how to create a page, and I *think* I saved it  
properly, but it doesn't show up and your reference to "categorizing"  
doesn't mean anything to me, I don't see any link at the bottom, and  
I have looked through help:editing extensively.

Does somebody have to look at the entry and approve it before it  
shows up ???

I apologize, I know next to nothing about wiki entries, and no  
offense intended, but this is about as intuitive as a Microsoft API.
