Larger sites are usually divided into sections and use sub navigation or a dropdown menu with the sub pages in it.
Some info about site layout...

To have different navigation bars on certain pages, you'd have to get rid of the automated NavBar and build one yourself. To remove the navbar or remove pages from the navbar, open inspector, click on the far left tab, then on the "Page" tab under that, and uncheck either "include page in navigaion menu" or "display navigation menu".
Not sure I understand this..
"Build your own in a text box, create the hyperlinks using the LIink inspector and then copy and paste it to each page of your website."
Can I just do a dropdown bar..or if do put in text box, how do I think put links into it?

You can't do a dropdown bar without much dificulty, so I wouldn't reccommend doing it if you can avoid it.
My method for doing a custom navbar:
Click on the "Shapes" drop down menu in the bottom tool bar. Select the square/rectange shape. This will put a box on the page.
Double-click on the box to type some text into it, like "Home". By using the text tab in the Inspector, set the text to be centered both vertically and horizontaly.
You can also customize the box's color and setting in the "Shapes" tab of the Inspector (The one with the blue circle and green square).
Then, head over the the hyperlink tab of the inspector (the one with the blue circle and white arrow inside). Making sure that the box is selected (not the text inside it), tic the "enable as hyperlink" box and set it to hyperlink to one of your pages. Then select the page.
Using this system, you can set up different sets of links in the navbar for different pages. For example, my page here http://3michigan.org/Site/Enlist.html has two different navbars, one horizonally on top and a vertical one in the right sidebar. To use the same bar on all your pages, command-click all the boxes which you want, then copy and paste onto all your pages.iWeb '09, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
