I know I'm a techno-tit, but when they say the photo has to be in jpeg format, does this mean it have to be on disk?? Or just NOT a passport photo?? Confused...

It has to be digital so it can be on a disk but you can also email it.

Any decent photo or desktop publishing software should be able to save as or convert a photo to the ".jpg" format. It's the standard format for photo files on websites.
