It needs to be hosted somewhere, then you can link to it from the Avatar settings part at the bottom of your profile page. Bear in mind it must be under 10k in filesize and within the 80x80 pixel size limit.

Most people you will find host there avatars in a folder on the webspace provided by plusnet (easiest) or use somewhere like www.photobucket.com

whichever you use you can edit the piccy on your system then use an ftp app (filezilla - cuteftp) to place it into your folder then copy the link location and paste it under avatars in your forum profile

So in short,
find (or steal ) a picture, (google on avatar if you've not got one)
put it on your computer,
go to www.imageshack.us and Host It,
copy the image location
open your Profile on this page,
paste the image location in the avatar bit at the bottom
submit your profile, and go to forum to check new avatar works.

Couple of points.

That avatar is over the maximum limits for these boards as I specified above, and also as specified on the profile page (80 x 80 pixels).

Also, imageshack is insanely slow at the best of times. I had read the entire thread before your image loaded.
