They will give you a good idea of how to set up a website. Personally I would look at the Personal Website and the Club Site Starter Kit. I downloaded these sites a couple of years ago and they helped me get started in the write direction.
You just put all your code into these pages and then include them in your page. I would suggest a master page which will give you site the same look and feel with a single page. You embed your user controls with in the master page. You'll see all this in the starter kits if you download them. They do a nice job of showing you all different controls.
See how that goes and let us know if you have any more questions.
