I have a big site that is in shambles.  I have to get all of the content (300 + megs), import it all into FP98, and then have FP98 make a hierarchy tree.  I know how to import the files, but I have no idea how to make FP98 trace the links and make the tree for me.  Any ideas?  Thanks!

I thought a little more info might help:

I have all of the files sitting in a directory.  When I import them into FP98, the folder with the entire site is named something like website.  This folder then has the cgi-bin, cgi-win, htdocs, etc.  The htdocs folder then has another folder in there called newhtdocs.  Finally the new htdocs folder has the index.htm that I want displayed when someone types in the domain.  I have a directory all set up for the site to be published to and IIS pointing to that directory.  How can I set this up so that the right index file in website/htdocs/newhtdocs gets pulled when the domain is pointed there so that they don't have to type in http://mydomain.com/website/htdocs/newhtdocs/index.htm?   FP98 wants to put the information above the directory instead of below the directory.  I want the cgi-bin and all that stuff under the htdocs directory, but FP 98 refuses to let me do this.  Any ideas?

Unless you are using a very sexy server a 300 Mb FP Web is not a good idea.....it will be very slow to work with and more prone to crash. Try and break it up into logical component webs (which can all be "part of" a higher level web. When you import all the files, FP will trace all the hyperlinks for you, if you have any CGI scripts etc then you may have to trace them yourself. To get the right index.htm file to be displayed, you need to create an "alias" in IIS service manager for that directory. Also make sure that you have the "Enable default document" option checked and that the default filename is set to "Index.htm" not "Default.htm". Now, whenever someone accesses http://mydomain.com/directoryname/ your index.htm file will be displayed. (if you want to skip the /directoryname/ part then just alias your root web birectory (ie C:\InetPub\WWWRoot\) You can move/rename folders and files in FP explorer as much as you like and FP will maintain all the links etc...... So you dont need to use the htdocs/newhtdocs defaults. Anyway, I hope some of this helps !!!! let me know if you need more clarification.
