Don't know about how many connections it can handle, it depends a lot on the speed, RAM, hard disk, etc of the computer its running on.  MS calls it "Personal" and they probably mean it :)  If you want a more robust server for not much, try Apache (www.apache.org) or for Windows, O'Reilly makes an easy web server (software.ora.com)

I don't know if IIS 2 has Frontpage support as a fact, but I can't imagine it not having it...

Distributing web pages is not a heavy duty because you're
probably distributing your pages over a telephone line or
ISDN. Even if you use your Personal WebServer on a 'fast' isdn line, your PC will be eating out of its nose. A 'real' webserver is much faster, but you need at least a 2 MB connection to wake
a 'real' server up.

IIS is great if you use Frontpage for your webauthoring.
Especially IIS 3.0 (with the active server pages) is great
but Windows NT is strongly recommended because PWS doesn't
support connecting to ODBC sources very well.
