Moving Front Page Webs

I have set up a pilot web on a virtual server.
Now I want to move the web onto a different drive
and on the port, 80 <root> server.

However, whenever I move it, I lose all navigation
information and it stops being a front page web.
If I put it in the root and use IIS4 to make it an FP
web, I can get at it, but all navigation information is lost.

Also I don't want it to be root web, but as a subdir.

This is a serious limitation for us, and the documentation
is not very helpful, any help would be greatly appreciated.


So to sum up. I want to move a subdir front page web to another web server and for it to keep all the hard work
we have put into designing the navigation and themes.

Are you using the Publish Web button.  Use this and answer the question that the wizard asks.  This will move the web keeping everything in tak.  It's the second button on the toolbar.
