There is nothing wrong with the directory structure of the site.

This is normal. Right now it is taking longer to get listed in
the search engines. It is not your site, it is all sites. You are
lucky to have the one page there right now. It can take 3-6
months for a deep crawl and then indexing. Don't panic.

>I've submitted pages seperately to engines and have been spidered (I'm assuming) via links.

You don't know what pages have been spidered or your don't know
if the spiders are crawling your entire site? There is a
difference.

Right now Google is showing no inbound links to your site. That
is a major problem. You need to get people to link to you. If you
are having problems getting inbound links, I would suggest you
make a background to match your smiley face screensaver. Give
away the background. Submit to free sites. They will often link
for that kind of stuff. It is a great way to get a bunch of links
quickly.
