The BeOS comes with a spartan but functional personal web server, called PoorMan. It's great for serving up HTML pages with GIF and JPEG images, but it doesn't currently handle more dynamic features, like server-side includes or CGI scripts.
The Using Internet Services chapter of the BeOS User's Guide includes pretty good instructions for using PoorMan, but here's the One Minute Manager's guide to getting your pages on your local network, or on the Internet:
Now, that was pretty easy, wasn't it!
Of course, this isn't the whole story. You may need to know more about creating and editing HTML files, or how to connect your system to the Internet to become your neighborhood Web Expert. Read the Connecting to the Internet With BeOS chapter of the BeOS User's Guide for more networking info (including how to view your first page from systems other than your local machine), and check out a good HTML book to learn more about creating web pages (Be's Webmaster recommends the books by Laura Lemay).
