I'm not really sure what you mean, but it could be that you're loop only fetch posts from certain category id:s. Could you post the source code of your index.php or whatever template you use to fetch the posts?

Or if this is not the problem, be a bit more specific of what you need help with!

In your ftp, you must find your file home.php
if you haven't this file you must find index.php

Open this file with notepad.

Find a line with a code like that
<strong>query_post('</strong>xxxxxxxxxxxxx<strong>&cat</strong>=xxxxxxxxxx')

after "cat" there is one number or +
like that :
<strong>query_post('</strong>xxxxxxxxxxxxx<strong>&cat=8,4</strong>')
this means that the category 8 and 4 are displayed

Replace this numbers by the id of categories you want to display
and paste this file into your ftp

To know the id of a category, go to your admin : http://your-domain.com<strong>/wp-admin/edit-tags.php?taxonomy=category</strong>
when you are on a category name (hover) you can read on the status bar something like that
<blockquote>http://your-domain.com/wp-admin/edit-tags.php?action=edit&taxonomy=category&post_type=post&tag_ID=56</blockquote>
in this case the ID of the category is 56
