Uhhh, cheers for the sales pitch Crystal, but I reckon these guys are already members if they're posting on the forum ;)
As a general rule of thumb, we recommend that you try to get at least 30% of your incoming links pointing to your internal pages, rather than your homepage. Make sure you've grasped the concept of "pagerank funneling" as well so that your internal link structure is sound and you're not firing pagerank off to your "contact us" page or anything like that.
On a slightly related note, there's a really good backlink lesson in the new Traffic Travis newsletter series. It goes over at least 10 methods of getting backlinks and some strategies for structuring your links. It's a looooooong fella too (I had to edit the beast) and it's got some tips that I hadn't heard before, so if you haven't downloaded TT and started receiving those then I'd do so just for that lesson.
(Hah, guess that was a bit of a sales pitch too!)
Good luck kids,
