Is it possible to configurate in order to connect directly to my homepage without firstly going to the desktop?

I have Windows XP Home, and use Firefox for the browser.

Thanks.

Place a shortcut to your home page into your Startup folder (on the Start Menu) and the page should automatically load when you boot up.

Thank you.
I've been trying without success to figure out how I can add a short cut to the start up menu.
As you can see, I'm pretty lousy at these sort of things.... but I'm slowly learning.
Thanks.

When I view that page, it says that I need to have a paid subscription to one of several magazines in order to view the entire content of the article:
