MS Frontpage 98 question...

Hi all,

   Here's the scenerio.  In our office we have two computers, mine and a co-workers.  We want to install Frontpage 98 on both computers.  Our website is on an NT server that is networked and mapped to drive n:.  When you install Frontpage, and you import a web, it copies all the files to the local hard drive and then you must publish the site in order for it to go back to the n: drive.  Now, because of this, when I make changes on my computer, they are not reflected on my co-workers, and vice-versa.  Is there any way to network FP or is there any way to make FP use the n: drive as the location of the files that way we can both work at the same time?  If this sounds confusing, let me know and I'll try to clarify.

Thanks alot,
Mike

When the FrontPage Explorer opens, it normally asks what internet page to open.  From this screen choose the NT web server..NOT the FP server on your system, but the actual NT webserver name.  So if you use http://NT-SYSTEM to access the page through the browser, use the same when opening FP98.  The password that it will ask for is the same password used when you publish the page onto the server.

If you don't want to access the web pages directly, have ONE person set up the FrontPage personal web server and import...and instead of using http://NT-SYSTEM when opening frontpage, use his computer name instead.

Using either of these ways will allow FP to access a shared set of files.

If you're confused now, let me know, and I'll try to explain a bit better.

Yeah,

   I'm a little confused.  The name of the web server is www.provost.school.edu.  So what would I put in for the web server?  We are also not working on the actual machine, the drive is mapped to a drive n: on both mine and my co-worker's computer.  Could you please clarify a bit?  Thanks alot...
