any tips for releasing freeware / shareware

Hi there!

I know this is a bit off-topic....but don't know where else in this board to post....

Does somebody have tips for me if I want to release a tool, written by myself, as free- or shareware?

Which sites are good to make it available to the public?

Are there any standard-liscences I can download and distribute with my tool?

If I use code from somebody else (like in my tool I use a CFolderDialog class from somebody at www.codeguru.com)...do I have to mention the creator - even if I have modified the code...and it contains no special algorithms - I could write it myself know

Thanks in forward
