I am using i-lateral's silverstripe-carousel, but I want every image of the carousel to be linked to a page on the website. What is the best way to achieve this?

By reading the instructions of course!

Once installed, you must add the template variable $CarouselSlides to any templates you require a carousel to appear on.

Then, you can setup a carousel by logging into the admin interface and editing the page you want to add a carousel to.

Then click the "Settings" tab, and tick the "add carousel" checkbox.

Once this is done (and you have saved) you will see a width and height overwrite appear (allowing you to change the size of your carousel).

Once you have finished configuring, you can go back to editing you page, and a "carousel" tab should have appeared in the right hand site of the editing pane.

Yes. I have the carousel up and running. All is well except that I want the images to be linked to pages on my site. For now, the images are static, so that nothing happens when a visitor clicks on them. Any ideas? The instructions do not cover how to do this.

Yep, check out the docs on DataExtension.
Create one that adds a has_one to a page (or a textbox for manual entry of a uri, or some kind of combination) and the form fields for filling it in, then apply it to CarouselSlide.
