The main page (home page) is a CMS Page.
Navigate to CMS >Pages > Home Page and update the home page content there.

If you need to display the products on home page,add any of the following as home page content.

1. To display the newly added products

{{block type="catalog/product_new" name="home.catalog.product.new" alias="product_homepage" template="catalog/product/new.phtml"}}

2. Or to display all the products

{{block type="catalog/product_list" name="home.catalog.product.list" alias="products_homepage" template="catalog/product/list.phtml"}}

Hi
First you create categories and then create product then to assign the products to category.
After then go to System->cache management.
In the cache management you just disable the all caches, then go and see your frontend page
