We are using CS4 Dreamweaver and I can't seem to get an absolute link to work? It works when I type lemarsalumni.org in the browser but when I try to make the link in dreamweaver with same as above it won't open up. We have tried http://etc...., http://www.etc...., www.etc.... and they all don't work. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

lemarsalumni.org is not a valid URL. The browser is just nice to you, that's why it works there.

In code however, only linking to 'lemarsalumni.org' is saying that you want the browser to open a file with the name 'lemarsalumni' and with the file extension 'org'.

'http://www.lemarsalumni.org' however, is a valid link. If that does not work for you, it's either not there, or you have network issues, nothing to do with Dreamweaver.
