I didn't see a word file in the attachment, but the tool set you almost certainly need to use is the Network Analyst extension.  Start with the help What is the ArcGIS Network Analyst extension? and follow the other help links to the left to find a solution that fits your problem.  Once you have identified the basic function that most closely fits your specific problem you can get more help here to modify it to your specific needs.

Now my answer is definitely use Network Analyst.  This is exactly the problem is it designed to solve.  It can trace distances around a point for a given distance along the roadway network for sure.  There is no other tool in ArcGIS that will do that except Network Analyst.  It is just the market area example shown in the link using a shorter distance.

So follow the link in my first post and give me the point I deserve.

I do not use the Network Analyst extension myself, I just am familiar with what it can do.  You should repost your problem in the Network Analyst forum to get help from actual users of the extension.  As far as I know, nothing other than Network Analyst can solve your problem.
