you should research UV mapping
the max help files should have all you need to know- to acess them press f1 when max is running

Just go to where you saved the texporter output and load it in the diffuse slot of a material.

Like the K man said need to learn to 'uv map' and or 'uv unwrap' to get like the image above shows.

you shouldn't need texporter if you've got max 9, in the uv window goto the top menu, tools> render uvw template and save that file
then you can take it into photoshop or whatever
then import it into a material slot- box next to diffuse and a jpg or psd etc
