In standard computing terms, it means moving your cursor onto something on the screen without clicking on it. There are a few different ways to "point" with your mouse: the grabber hand, the I-beam pointer (which is looks like the standard cursor), and the selection pointer, which looks like an arrow.

On the Net, "point" refers to the act of placing your cursor onto a link in order to direct the browser to go to another Web page.

For example, "Point your browser to NetLingo.com" means "go to" that particular Web site.
