1. Go into Admin >> Appearances >> Editor >> index.php and find these lines (there are 2 sets – 1 for the left colum and 1 for the right column:

php query_posts(’cat=1&showposts=3′);
php $posts = get_posts(’category=1&numberposts=3&offset=0′);

Change the category ID number (in 2 places) to the category you want to display. You can also change the number of posts that are shown (also in 2 places) although for asthetics 3 in the left column and 2 in the right column is recommended.

2. To change the headings of the main content columns go into Admin >> Appearances >> Editor >> index.php and find this line (2 places) and change the text between the < h3>< /h3> tags:
< div class=”title”>< h3>HEADING< /h3>< /div>

3. To have the images show up in the left hand content column you’ll need to install the Get The Image plugin created by Justin Tadlock
