I found this website: http://www.greek-gods.info. And it seems pretty decent to me. I was wondering what y'all thought about it and if you happen to know of any other websites on roman, kemetic and other mythologies?!

A bit overly simplistic, though it doesn't look too appalling for an intro site. I would recommend http://www.theoi.com over any other site I've ever seen on Greek mythology- and if anyone tries to tell me that a better site exists, I call shenanigans (at least until I've had a chance to thoroughly check it for myself).  (If you're at all interested in greek myth, you'll likely spend a substantial bit of time there.)

As for Roman, Hmmm...Okay, so here's the thing, a lot of what is thought of as Roman mythology is actually Greek mythology with Roman names. There are some Roman myths, but not a lot. I don't really know good resources offhand, but you might try http://novaroma.org

Believe it or not, in my experience, wikipedia articles usually aren't that bad- at least, they've always been pretty good with respect to the ones that I actually know enough about to be able to say "Yeah, that's good" or "No, that's a load of horse pucky".
