I need to render a image for a web button. I would like to have the image on a transparent background. Is there a way to do this directly in Lightwave.

when I render my image to a small size say 60x30. It is very hard to see the detail . Are there any tricks to make it more clear or is this the nature of tiny images.

To get the transparency you have to render to a 32 bit format like tga 32 to get the alpha channel out with the image.

This is probably the nature of small things. If you're going to render that small, use lots of antialiasing, and keep the obect simple.
