Can you display a specific record in a visualforce page to put into a home page component?

Our support department is responsible for different Task types everyday. I created a custom object and record for our Support Manager in which he can update the fields for the different Task types as need. Is there a way to display this record on the Home Page via a VisualForce Page?

I tried displaying it on the VFP using a report, but that doesn't seem to be working for me either. 

This is the code I was using:
<apex:page > <iframe src="https://cs91.salesforce.com/00O2F000000OFQh?isdtp=mn" style="border:none; width:1024px; height:480px"></iframe> </apex:page>


But I kept getting this error:
Error Warning: The element type "div" should be terminated by the matching end-tag "</div>" in c__accounthierarchytree at line 71
