Help required regarding in salesforce

hi all,
im trying to extend the salesforce functionality. the problem im facing is that, there needs to be a starting point from salesforce to my-webserver where the 'extension' pages are placed. does the sales force provide such a functionality? and if yes, how.
You can either use Custom Links (aka WILs) to create a link from the links section of a detail page to your system, or use the HYPERLINK formula field function to create a link in the data part of a page.
thanks for the reply,
but more specifically, this is wat i want to do.
I create an event. on the salesforce, i want people who view the event to be provided a link to another page (which may contain some info etc) that resides at my personal webserver. i could either put the url it in the description of the event. but that doesnt sound a good implementation. i want a hyperlink at that salesforce page which shud link to some page at my server.
kindly help me in this context
What i described will do exactly that.
One caviot Simon -- You can't use a WIL on a Task/Event page -- you'll need to use a formula field and the HYPERLINK() function.
Good catch, that's weird.
