hello- I want my domain (cmgh.net) which I have registered w/ joker.com (not hosted anywhere) to be directed to a site I have registered and host with mindspring.com What do I need to do? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You need some form of DNS pointing, which tells the browser which ip to associate with your domain. You can get free dns-pointing here

Mindspring should provide you with the names of the DNS servers you should use. If not, you'll have to see about DNS hosting as stareye suggests. Once you have the DNS server names, you'll need to let joker.com know what they are.
Once joker.com has them, they'll be propogated out to other DNS servers so when someone types in your domain name, their DNS servers (usually at their ISP) know which DNS server they need to query to get your current IP. (the preceding was a simplification of the process and is not intended to be a detailed lecture of the domain name process)
