ofoto.com is also free, but it is lacking in some areas (i.e. it shrinks down the image and doesn't let you display a full sized version)

It's in its 'thumbnails' facility...

1. Resize and compress desired files to, say, 700x525, into a separate folder using Irfanview's 'Batch resize' (adding sharpening if desired).

2. Select the thumbnails for all the images in 'Irfanview thumbnails'.

3. Select "File | Save selected thumbs as HTML file".

Irfanview then copies all the image files, a thumbnail of each, and all the necessary html files, including a nice index sheet of thumbnails with file names & sizes, into a new folder.

This all takes a few minutes or less to give quite an acceptable result for you to try out as a local web page. You can then transmit this as a single folder to anywhere that you can find that'll give you some free web space, without needing a specialist photo site.

One step more sophisticated is to edit the text in the html files to your taste using the poor man's web editor, i.e., the 'View source' editor in Internet Explorer. It will obviously be polite to leave a big , fat credit to Irfanview if you do that.

I hadn't tried the Irfanview method, but Jeremy's Thumbs Creator XP worked for me on Win98SE. It's quick and dirty and handy if you've got some webspace and just need to quickly post photos for friends 'after the night before'.
